Practice Allyship

  • Check in on your Black friends, partners, and colleagues.
  • Educate yourself on what it means to be anti-racist. Google is free.
  • Share and repost resources to educate those around you. Amplify Black voices and Black stories.
  • Have the hard conversations with your friends and family so Black people don’t have to. Identify your privilege and condemn it. 
  • Hire Black creatives, communicators, lawyers, chefs – employ them all.
  • Be an ally and advocate after the outrage ends and the protests stop. Hold space for Black people who have lived this through every generation. 

Reflect on Your Privilege

  • What do you think of when you hear the term white supremacy? 
  • How does it make you feel when a person of color calls something you did or said racist? 
  • In what ways do you allow racism to persist? 
  • How can you actively be anti-racist instead of simply not racist?
  • How are you personally going to dismantle white supremacy and anti-blackness in your life?
