We've compiled a list of approachable acts that can help shape a more progressive and inclusive society. The goal? To be a on the right side of history! Every one of these actions are steps towards a more united society for all! 

Use Your Voice and Platform

Bring to attention groups and issues that matter, and that others might not be talking about! Social media is a great way to share news stories, volunteer groups, and calls to action!

Check In With Your Privilege 

It can be hard to do, but it is entirely necessary. There are many silent and accepted norms in American society that work to keep minority groups down. Daily lessons and check‑ins, such as the ones provided by Anti‑Racism Daily are crucial! You can subscribe to their daily newsletter at: antiracismdaily.com

Get Involved In Your Community

There are more than 500,000 elected officials in the entire US Government, and over 89,000 of them are in local government. Change starts at the bottom, just the way that Stacey Abrams mobilized Georgia voters. Getting involved can include volunteering, VOTING at the local level, and even running for local office!

Educate Yourself On Policy

We are inundated with information and stories on all fronts, we know ow overwhelming it is. That’s why we urge you to take the time to sit down and learn about the REAL story and the impact it has on marginalized groups. Learning the source of the issue can bring insight to action and inspire the change you want to see!

Of Course, Vote!

Because so many people cannot, and because every vote counts. Always make sure your voter status is up to date (since we often move to new places) and learn all about the local & federal policies on the ballot! You can always check your voter registration status as well as find polling locations in your area! 

Inspire Younger Generations to Participate

Do you have kids? Younger family members? Or even teenagers in your community? Instilling civics in them is SO important. We often fail to emphasize the importance of voting and getting active until we’re adults! Why not start the conversation earlier rather than later?!

 

 You have the opportunity to shape your future and leave behind a world that impacts generations behind you! It starts with small steps towards progress ‑ equality for all does not mean a smaller slice, this is not a pie.
