Yesterday’s social media blackout was an overwhelming reminder how many of us stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Now it’s time to move forward with next steps and further educate ourselves.
We spent the day reflecting, researching and assessing our own role in all of this, and were reminded we have a lot of work to do ourselves and are having internal discussions how we can address some of these issues on an industry level.
First and foremost, education is key. We have compiled a few links below that may interest those wondering how they can support the movement and educate themselves further.
If your first reaction to all of this was “ALL lives matter”, please spend some time researching what the current issue is about.
Spread love – only good things can come from it.
