Actions You Can Take
I keep an updated list of petitions and actions to take on https://linktr.ee/NourishingJustly under the "Justice/Action" heading.
"Justice is what love looks like in public." Dr. Cornel West
“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”
Angela Y. Davis
"Sharing statistical data about racial inequalities but failing to explicitly name how racism caused these inequalities, allows people to overlook the power of institutional racism. It happens so much in schools, in the media, and in books, that when BIPoC begin to describe how many of the inequities we face are caused by racism, our reality is questioned. Often by people who were taught that BIPoC just happen to be in the predicament we are in. Share the why." Jacquelyn Ogorchukwu
