Black Lives Matter

So my instagram is private at the moment bc of some *personal drama*, but I've posted about this a lot on there and I wanted to post this on here too. I'd feel disingenuous not saying anything on my blog about this as although it's only a small platform, it's still a platform.

I think we've all realised that what we were doing is not enough. It's never going to be done until people are actually treated equally, being given the same opportunities and most importantly, not being killed by the police. Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and so many others in the US, here in the UK, and all over the world. 

There are sooo many useful resources being highlighted right now, make sure that you read them, share them with people you know who aren't on social media, and save them for coming back to because the social media cycle will move on but we can't. It's got to be a continuous action, continuous process of learning. You've all heard this by now from many people far more eloquent than me, but I wanted to add my voice.

So for now, do what you can- whether that's protesting, donating money or time, or having difficult conversations. But please, be kind to yourself and your friends and stay safe <3 <3
