It's been another tough week, amongst many in the last ten years where black, brown and queer people of colour are inundated with requests and commentary on the heightened awareness of what the world realizes is their daily experience, at least for the duration of the news cycle.

Bookmark their links, follow them online, use them to find more resources, or act on their suggestions. Doing anti-racism is very difficult and challenging, and the ideas that are featured in so many company statements all started from their experiences.
