Black Lives Matter.
We Kno.

Here’s how to bring about change.

There’s nothing we can say that hasn’t already been said by so many others. Instead of rehashing those thoughts, we will continue to amplify black voices, we will share resources + we will support the protests in any other ways we can in hope of sustaining this momentum to bring about real change. Turning awareness into action is the only way forward. 

We’ve compiled this non-exhaustive list of resources we’ve come across — books to read, organizations to donate to, initiatives and leaders to follow, black businesses to buy from and work with, and more. We’ll continue to update so please reach out with any new suggestions at
