In a time of such heartbreak, we say their names: George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Tony McDade. Regis Korchinski. Breonna Taylor. David McAtee. Justin Howell.
Black lives matter.
Sometimes we can feel something like compassion fatigue. There is so much going on at once and so many things wrong. But even when we are so tired, we still must carry on using our voices, our words, our funds where possible and our hands in peaceful protest so that we can build the world we want to see.
One where justice is real, safety for our black bodies is assured and one in which we are not afraid to live.
This article in the cut details a list of places that you can donate to for George Floyd and the #blacklivesmatter movement.
