Black Lives MATTER

black lives matter

I want to make it very clear that I am unequivocally on the side of Black people in this ongoing quest for their equality.

As a privileged white cis-gendered Canadian female, I stand against racism, and strive to be a better ally against racism – yes, even over here in Canada. We are not immune from racism and it’s insulting that some of us think so.

I’m going to add links here for those who, like me, are looking for ways to help.

The list is a teeny list, and not at all exhaustive. I am definitely open to your suggestions.
