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.
