A Message to Our Allies

White allies marching in a protest with signs that say "Black Lives Matter" and "Defund the Police"

A key responsibility in being an ally to the Black community is being committed to removing the barriers to success that were strategically placed there, and resulted in systemic and institutional racism. Internalizing and enacting the knowledge required to accomplish this requires active listening,  learning, and understanding. Take advantage of the resources available on this site to listen, gain a better understanding, and become a better ally.
