ENGAGED IN ANTI-RACISM AND EQUAL JUSTICE ACTIVISM
Set up by friends and family of Ahmaud Arbery, this page was the first to sound the alarm about Ahmaud’s murder. It posts daily actions people can take to achieve justice for Ahmaud and provides a place for people to share their feelings and memories.
Multiple groups and individuals have formed the Just Georgia Coalition in Atlanta in response to the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. Just Georgia seeks to address the immediate and long-term needs of Georgians impacted by state violence, mass incarceration and other systems of oppression.
SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals working to undermine white supremacy and to work toward racial justice. SURJ has chapters all over the country, including in Atlanta and Savannah, so it’s a great resource no matter where you are in the U.S.
READINGS AND ACTIONS FOR WHITE / EUROPEAN AMERICANS
This article is continually updated to ensure each item is accurate and needed today. Achieving racial justice is a marathon, not a sprint. Our work to fix what we broke and left broken isn’t done until Black folks tell us it’s done.
Author's Note: “ … not all marginalized people want to engage in the ally conversation, and that is perfect as well. For those who do, my prayer is that when someone asks you the question, “how can I be a stronger ally?” you might choose to save your breath/energy and send this in its place.”
The White Ally Toolkit/Ally Conversation Toolkit helps anti-racism allies do their part in the fight against racism by empowering and equipping them with best practice communications skills based on listening, storytelling, and compassion. These best practices will allow them to become more persuasive in conversations with racism skeptics.
