10 Ways White People Can Help This Week. And It Doesn't Just Include A Social Media Blackout

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

I promised myself this week that I would do better.

It’s not enough to educate my kids from my liberal, ultra-privileged standpoint. I commit to being anti-racist even (and especially) in situations that make me feel uncomfortable. With friends, with family, with neighbors, with co-workers, with whomever I come across.

And with that goal in mind, I made a list (because that's how I get started with everything!), collating some of the best IG posts and articles I have come across.

Obviously this is just a tiny number of them out there, so if you have some amazing ones, please feel free to share.

I am committed to doing my research, to owning my prejudices, to owning my own country's dire history when it comes to mistreating people from other countries, and to being open and honest about that.

I am also committed to doing this every day. Forever.

Racism will not thrive in this silence.
