Beyond The Protests

Updated: Jul 3, 2020

Volunteer for, donate to, support and promote black organizations and businesses to keep this movement going once the cameras are off and society moves on.

Right now, the hardships our Black community is facing is at the forefront of media and society. Seeing companies publicly denounce bigotry and racism is powerful! We are heading in the right direction. All this emotion, passion and attention will fade if we do not continue to stoke the fire. How do we keep this momentum going after the news cycles, hashtags, and protests move on? What happens when the hardships of our Black community loses the national attention?
