Discover how to be actively anti-racist, in your own voice, on a regular basis, on social media. This resource helps you discover what to say, why you should say it, and how.
When you woke up to the anti-racism movement, I’m guessing you were encouraged to sit back, be silent, listen, and learn. Too many people have gotten comfortable there. You’ve taken “listen and learn” to mean you never have to speak up or speak out. That’s not true. That’s not how to be actively anti-racist.
We live in a world where anyone can have a platform. Maybe you opened a social media account thinking you were simply going to grow your brand, sell some merchandise, learn a few dance moves, and keep in touch with family and friends. The thing is, social media connects us to the world in ways we never could have imagined.
For example, social media has helped make more and more people aware of systemic racism, white supremacy, and police brutality. Many people have awakened to the impact of these injustices and have committed to a life of anti-racism. If you’re reading this, I imagine this is you, too. Welcome.
