How to actively make changes right now: take a step back, research, listen, assess, implement and share important voices and resources for the Black Lives Matter movement.
🧠I am listening, watching and learning a lot right now, I acknowledge that I have a lot of work to do personally and as a small business owner/nutrition coach to be actively anti-racist (rather than simply “not racist”) & want to share so that others can also find important resources.
Here is what I have been able to do so far & encourage you to find your own ways of participating & make a stand for positive change in history.
📃Petitions: Change.org for the petitions of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony Mcdade, David Mcatee and Breonna Taylor; emails sent for Justice for George and Breonna
(Others are Colorsofchange.org; amnesty.org; justiceforbreonna.org; thepetitionsite.com; others found in the link in my bio)
(Others are Reclaim the Block, NAACP legal defense fund, MOODI-others found in the link in my bio)
📚Courses (free): #DoTheWork with @rachel.cargle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📆Courses (paid): Anti-Racism for Fitness Professionals with @iamchrissyking on 6/9 (fitness/nutrition coaches who follow me I recommend joining!)
