How to Support Social Justice Projects

Updated: Jun 10

Many people are not the marching type. I know, because I am one of those people. Crowds give me an anxiety I cannot explain, but I'm glad to say that there are other ways to help out social justice projects around the globe.

Many of these platforms are based here in Minnesota; if you have other platforms that are reputable, please share them in the comments.

Use Your Platform to Speak Up

It's important that we stay consistent with making sure we keep our audiences aware of the truth of what happens in the world. Solidarity is essential, especially during this time.

Take Care of Yourself

It's easy to get sucked into fighting the fight, trust me, I know. But, if you do not plug into your source, you will only be fighting on fumes alone. Make sure to pay attention to yourself so that you can be the best version of you, while offering your help to others.

Remember, every little bit helps! There are too many resources to remain in the dark. Let's start here, and work upward!
