Black Lives Matter: Listening, learning and supporting

With the compassion we show our planet through the environmental and human rights supporting choices we make in this community, it is of vital importance moving forward to show that same consideration, support and love for our fellow brothers and sisters living on this planet we are trying so hard to protect. This post will be dedicated to sharing the platforms of activists, podcasts, learning material, donation links and petitions you can sign.


There is no room for ignorance and passivity in the face of racial injustice. Being part of larger, systematically racist societies, we need to stay aware and keep educating ourselves on the lived experiences of the victims of racism; on the history of racism and injustice and its perpetuation over time and presently; and the greater immediate and lasting impacts that racism has on victims.


We need to use our voices and privilege for the greatest cause of mankind: justice, love, peace and equality for all.
