How can I Help?
There’s many ways to help, such as:
-Donating (if you can, I’ve also attached a link on how to donate without money)
-Educating yourself and others around you (there’s no excuse for being ignorant)
-Listening to black voices and uplifting them
-Supporting black owned businesses, families affected by police brutality and friends/neighbours
-Attending protests (if it’s safe for you to do so)
-Supporting protests/protestors from home.
