Anti-Racism

Center black women

Black women and girls have always been instrumental in the fight for racial justice and other social justice movements, but too often, they have been left behind by the very movements that should protect and uplift them. We must center Black women in all our activism and commit to protecting Black women and girls everyday.

Take Action

Sign the Petitions

Don’t restrict your activism to virtue-signaling on social media. Ensure the nation realizes how strong this movement is by adding your name to petitions calling for justice. (Quick note: Change.org is a private corporation. If you make donations to them after you sign a petition, those funds do NOT go towards the petitions or organizations asking for your signature. Instead, consider donating to the nonprofits and mutual funds listed on this page.)
