The Ultimate Black Lives Matter Resource List

Hey y’all! If you saw our Instagram post last week, we muted ourselves for the week in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement to learn, listen, and research on racism as well as our white privilege. We took the challenge to heart and decided to put together a resource guide for everyone who wants to continue to help abolish the racism that is so deeply ingrained in our society. We know that this is hard, challenging, and uncomfortable, but that is when change can really happen.
