The recent incident involving George Floyd and a police officer has once again brought forward the issue of racial discrimination. While it has been prominent for the last couple of years, things seem to have gotten out of hand, and people are now demanding justice for the innocent man. His last words, “I Can’t Breathe” has been echoed in every single protest rally and in the minds of people who understand the need for change. As a result, the famous movement, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) has once again come into effect, and it is essential that we support this cause and push forward the needs of the same. So to help you out on this front, we are here to talk about a few ways through which you can make things possible.
The number of fundraisers that have been set up in the US to tackle the recent issue tends to go up in numbers. The funds that are generated through the same are used to bail out protectors and support the entire movement. As a result, you can donate to these fundraisers and show your support to a movement that matters the most. Black Visions Collective, Reclaim the Block, Official George Floyd Memorial Fund, Black Lives Matter and American Civil Liberties Union are few of the organisations where you can lend your support.
Even if you’re not able to make it to a project rally, you can always sign a petition and circulate the same across all social media platforms. Apart from Justice for George Floyd, you can also find petitions that highlight the cause of justice for Ahmed Arbery, Belly Mujinga and Breonna Taylor. So all you have to do is to sign the petition and share it amongst people to make the movement an effective one. In this manner, people from all across the world will be able to hear and understand the issues plaguing humanity.
3. Protests Rallies
Protests rallies have been the ideal tool for such movements, and even history has pointed towards that particular fact. But if you’re doing so, then you need to follow the right set of procedures that are in place to tackle the spread of Covid-19. By wearing masks and following the norms of social distancing, we can all take part in the movement for change. In case you’re in a different part of the world, then you can always find out more about such protests that are taking place through Zoom and other such platforms. So think about the same and move ahead to create a sense of change that is going to be beneficial for the whole of humanity.
