I have a small platform but I know that I need to use whatever platform I have to do my bit to support the Black Lives Matter movement. I am devastated by the atrocities committed over the last couple of days, with the horrific murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery
I have signed petitions, shared mental health resources on my twitter, helped bring to light what is happening to my family here in the UK and I watched booktuber Bowties and Books’ Instagram story and Live of them detailing their experience protesting peacefully in Minneapolis. Tears fell down my face as I watched their story.
While there is still more I can do I thought I should do my bit to support the movement on my blog. Below are going to be petitions you can sign and places you can donate to help as much as you can.
Educate yourselves, say their name and do not forget what has happened. I am in solidarity with my black brothers and sisters.
- Justice for George Floyd Petition
- Justice for Big Floyd Petition
