TAKE ACTION

Staying informed is not the only way you can help in the fight for social justice. Taking action in different forms can make a difference. Thus, I will be constantly linking and updating ways you can do so.

PROTESTS:

Some people prefer to directly take action through protests and marches. If you are one of those people, here are some tips for finding protests near you. Go to facebook.com and go to the Events tab. On the left-hand side, there is the option to search events. You can search either "protest" or "march" and you will be given the events occurring in your general location. If you do attend a protest make sure you follow the law, stay safe, wear a mask, and be aware of your surroundings. (Disclaimer: I am not encouraging you to go to a protest, do so at your own risk and decision).

VOLUNTEERING:

Volunteering is another great way to take action and give back to your community. Places you can do volunteer work related to social justice include the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and more I will link below.
