This is How I Protest!

black lives matter Sep 29, 2023

I am heartbroken lynching in any form continues in modern-day America. Powerful protests in response to the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Black people continue across the nation, with calls for reform and restitution in the face of police brutality.

One of the ways I protested was in an interview on WNYC last week, click HERE to listen.


For various reasons, not everyone may be able to attend or should attend a protest in person. There are many ways to fight for justice and equity.

Here are a few ideas to get started:


Many nonprofits and organizations work nonstop to support the families of slain Black Americans and aid protestors with necessary resources, like bail funds, to continue their fight against injustice.

Sign petitions

Your name has power! You can show solidarity toward movements and organizations, or demand justice by merely signing a petition.

Buy Black

Your money has tremendous power! Support black-owned businesses and boycott businesses that are not making moves to address inequity.

Join a group

"Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable" -Kenyan proverb

Our voices are more influential when we unite. Find a group to join or support.

Hire and mentor

In whatever way, you can hold your employer accountable for equity. Increase the number of underrepresented people in your field by seeking out Opportunities to share your wisdom.


"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." ~African Proverb


Finding your way to protest is a powerful way to restore inner peace and hope even when your heart is breaking, or you are so angry you want to explore. Share how you protest below.
