The fatal shooting of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25 served as an impetus for recent nationwide protests against police brutality. The Black Lives Matter movement isn’t new, but the recent protests show no signs of slowing — and they’ve been coupled with continuing calls for defunding the police and investing in communities. If you want to show your support, but can't go out to protest, here are some ways to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Whether you or a loved one are immunocompromised and can't risk it during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you're still working and can't make it to a demonstration, or a protest is just — for whatever reason — not feasible for you, that doesn't mean you can't pitch in. There are plenty of other ways to express your stance and show your support for Black Lives Matter that don't require you to take to the streets in protest. Remember, though, that this list is by no means exhaustive, and there are many, many more things you can do to help support the cause. We'll be updating this story with more suggestions, recommendations, and actions as they emerge and are shared with us.
