Thank you to Bay Area theatremaker Leigh Rodon-Davis for sharing these actions and resources.
1. Think before you re-share graphic videos of violence against Black people. While these images are important to raise awareness and show others the extremity of this brutality, you risk re-triggering or traumatizing Black and brown folx in your communities.
2. Take time to educate other non-Black folx and challenge anti-blackness and racism in your families and social networks. This labor should not fall on people of color who are living these experiences.

3. Participate in advocacy to support the victims and their families; do your due diligence and make sure the organization is actually donating to the proper parties.
