#TheShowMustBePaused

– This page is a work in progress as of 2nd June 2020, but the work does not stop here and I will continue to update this page whilst learning more –

Before today I didn’t realise how worryingly little I knew and I’m overwhelmed by information regarding Black Lives Matter. Across today I found a lot more resources even more interesting/useful than I thought I would. So instead of potentially spreading misinformation, I’ve decided to compile a list of useful links/resources/information/etc. This post wasn’t planned and it’s a bit of a sham as it’s a work in progress, but I hope someone somewhere might find some of this as useful as I have.

We understand that we will never understand, but we will stand.

 

Useful links:

Black Lives Matter/Donate

More BLM Info/Educational links

Justice for George Floyd

No money to donate? No problem. You can stream this video on Youtube (made by black creators) and the ad revenue will be donated to the associations that offer protester bail funds, help pay for family funerals, and advocacy that are listed in the beginning of the video.
