Writer – Playwright – Cannot Save You From The Robot Apocalypse

I’ve been largely silent on this blog during this time and that isn’t right. While I’ve shared articles and posts on Facebook and in my Instagram stories, it isn’t enough. I don’t want to be a performative ally, I want to help and I don’t know how. As a privileged white woman I’ve worried about speaking when this happens. I worry that my voice will overpower and takeaway from the Black and other POC voices, so I’ve kept silence which is worse. So I’m learning how to be a better ally, learning how to find my voice as an ally, one that says to listen to the voices that are going ignored instead of shouting over them.

While I work on this, here are some Black Lives Matter resources and how you can help during this time.
