This is a different blog post to usual, but I feel that it is really important I need to share resources online to educate ourselves and help others. I explained on Instagram what I was thinking and I hope you’re able to find the time to read these pieces I’m going to link and sign every petition. By sharing them here I hope they can be all in one place and you’re able to click on every single piece.
To sign these petitions you also need to click confirm signature in an email, otherwise your efforts won’t count.
Unfortunately this is just a handful of the petitions, there are so many shared on social media, in particularly Twitter and Instagram so please search outside of your bubble and find them.
There are new websites popping up full of threads and information you can look at to learn and donate:
Amy the human behind @sillytillypoodle has put together a Spotify playlist of podcasts about black experiences in the UK as well as racism. You can easily listen to these in the car or whilst you’re at home – https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7CRhOzOKGtOAceGm8BT0xV?si=0bqTdDy6R3eAn6I12M9WiA
IGTV has also had some really good videos shared for us to educate ourselves and try to understand how the Black community feel.
I am definitely not the one to advise what you should read or do, but I’m taking this time to educate myself and support in any way I can; whether that’s signing petitions, donating money or sharing the word.
If you don’t agree with any of the links or information I have shared, please unfollow me on all my accounts, you’re not the kind of person I’d like to know and we certainly won’t miss you.
Thank you for reading,
