Resources for Resilience, Solidarity & Action
Here resources we are collecting along the way. To get the most up-to-date version, visit this Google doc.
Ways to Take Action:
- Follow the lead of the Movement for Black Lives
- Donate to Youth Justice Coalition, a Youth Passageways partner on the ground in Los Angeles fighting for justice. Consider monthly giving. One-time gifts in times like this are helpful, but even more so is sustained, reliable giving. Become a monthly donor to a Black-led organization.
- Review the official Black Lives Matter list for additional ways you can engage, petitions to sign, politicians to contact etc.
- Support movement makers like the Movement for Black Lives and/or other black-led organizations on the ground like Black Visions Collective and Reclaim the Block.
- Where to donate to protests:
Resources for Black folks
- Resources for Black Healing_Updated_6_1_2020_(2).pdf created by: Micalah Webster. In Micalah’s words, ‘I’ve seen a lot on my timeline and all over the internet resources for non-black POC and white folks looking to learn, act, and support during this time. However, when I wanted to find resources for my own healing there was a noticeable gap. I wanted to make something for my family, friends, and colleagues that are hurting and looking for support too.”

- Letters for Black Lives: Letters for Black Lives is a set of crowdsourced, multilingual, and culturally-aware resources aimed at creating a space for open and honest conversations about racial justice, police violence, and anti-Blackness in our families and communities. We began as a group of Asian Americans and Canadians writing an intergenerational letter to voice our concerns and support for the Black community. We have since grown to include other immigrant groups and communities of color. Our goal is to listen, support, and amplify the message of Black Lives Matter within our communities.
