Here are some simple ways you can be empowered to combat anti-blackness in your own communities.



————————
Note: BDS started as an international anti-Zionist strategy movement to defund Israeli presence and cut ties with corps that fuel the occupation in Palestine but we see it fit to extend this as a tool for anti-racism as well. Capitalist systems use money to exploit BIPOC around the world. Use your money wisely and pressure your lawmakers to do the same.

Yeppppp. A brave young Black woman with a cellphone just rocked police departments everywhere.

Calling out abusive systems and continuing to demand justice DOES work. We will build from this victory. 🖤🌻🕯 #blacklivesmatter #endqualifiedimmunity #divestfrompoliceandprisons #justice #karma 🕯🌻🖤

Belief is powerful and transformative. From overcoming a bad habit to calling out a corrupt system, if we believe in ourselves or in our communities, nothing can stop us.

We all have personal stories of achieving something we thought was impossible - even something as small as taking a shower can be a huge accomplishment some days right? We can build from these successes. #justice #constitutionalrights #karma #endqualifiedimmunity #blacklivesmatter #gaslighting #divestfrompoliceandprisons

🕯 No justice = No peace 🕯 It's time to end qualified immunity.

Police will continue to act as though they are above the law as long as they are above the law. #blacklivesmatter #justice #karma #defundthepolice #divestfrompolice #divestfrompoliceandprisons #endqualifiedimmunity

So the police officers that murdered #breonnataylor still haven't been tried in court, weird right?

Even after taxpayers paid a $12 million police settlement for her death. It's almost like the police are out of control in America and basic human rights laws somehow don't apply to Black communities. #justiceforbreonnataylor #blacklivesmatter #divestfrompoliceandprisons

What is @uftny leadership celebrating? Look at Mulgrew’s statements this week.

Look at the official @uftny social media. You’d think this was some great triumph. In reality, Mulgrew sold out and lied to his members in order to curry just a little more favor with a local political establishment that will hopefully soon be swept away, the same as his own union establishment.

Don’t be distracted by those who would prefer us to think all is lost.

At this moment we are in a process of large-scale transformation. We are collectively powerful and making great progress despite what the media would like us to believe. We must remain emotionally centered and strategically engaged moving forward. ✨✨✨ #justice #constitutionalrights #blacklivesmatter #supportblackcreators #supportblackbusiness #endqualifiedimmunity #thebreatheact #divestfrompoliceandprisons #defundthepolice

If the flame is fading, rekindle your interest in civil rights.

Just because it’s not in the news so often doesn’t mean that violence against Black communities has decreased. Donate, reach out, and SHOW UP! #blacklivesmatter #justiceforbreonnataylor #justicforaudrey #justiceforjacobblake #justiceforelijahmcclain #justice #constitutionalrights #divestfrompoliceandprisons #vote

Police brutality should be a non-partisan issue, yet neither #Democrats nor #Republicans are doing enough to change imbedded practices.

Hold your local representatives accountable. #Vote out fascists and their enablers. #blacklivesmatter #divestfrompolice #divestfrompoliceandprisons #justice #endqualifiedimmunity #vote2020

This will keep happening until we fully abolish the police and start radically investing in community organization and resistance.

Please do not share the video.

On Sunday, August 23, a Black man was shot in the back seven times by police officers in Kenosha, WI. Reports indicate that the police were on the scene to respond to a domestic dispute, and the victim was attempting to help settle it (Kenosha News). A video of the shooting was widely circulated on social media. In the video, the victim can be seen walking to his car and opening the door before being restrained by a police officer and shot point-blank in the back. A reporter for WISN, a news channel in Wisconsin, later confirmed that the victim is 29-year-old Jacob Blake (Twitter). A large group of people was present to witness the shooting, in addition to his fiancée and children. As of the time of writing this, Blake is in serious condition.⁣⁣

I’ve had 13th in my Netflix queue for quite some time. Decided to finally watch it last night and did so with my 14 year old son. What a powerful documentary. As a history major and social science teacher I was aware of the majority of what was presented, but I also still learned. I enjoyed being able to share this with my son as well. @ava

This is a must watch for anyone who wants to understand race in America, and why Black Lives Matter is much more than a slogan...

I find this image chilling. I see a literal army of people with weapons and battle gear and a young woman with a sign.

Juxtaposing this with the knowledge that protesters are being beaten and villainized for EXPRESSING A MESSAGE makes me sick to my stomach. #WhyWeFight #blm #divestfrompoliceandprisons #divestfrompolice

Article from @gothamist reporting on the recent #NYPD actions, which include abducting a teenager.

Demands call for #commissionershea to resign. What happened here, and in Portland, DC, Minneapolis...honestly, all around the country and the world is wrong on so many levels, and is in no way acceptable. Protest is a right that needs to be protected, and a duty when tactics and rhetoric stoking oppression, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia, are so rampant. We have an orange menace emboldening nazis, ruining the planet, and ignoring a global pandemic, among a long list of other heinous crimes. As a place that prides itself on being a sanctuary city and leader of progress, New York needs to take its role seriously and do better. That means treating civilians with autonomy and dignity. @nycmayor needs to take this and all other instances of #policeforce seriously and demand action and accountability for this and all the other inhuman acts taken against citizens. #nikkistone matters. #blacklivesmatter #translivesmatter #protestisaright #defundpolice #marchforequality #abolitionpark #cityhallplaza #equaljustice #accountability #divestfrompoliceandprisons #nojusticenopeace #endpolicebrutalitynow

“Invest in the world that you want to live in.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀

In light of the pandemic, the social inequality and the need to build a more inclusive future, it’s time we pursue financial independence with people, planet and profit in mind.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In this sustainable investing primer, we cover a bunch of resources that you can use to evaluate if your investments meet certain social, environmental and governance factors (ESG).⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In sustainable investing, you may hear the terms "ESG investing", "socially responsible investing", “impact investing”, and/or "social justice investing" used interchangeably.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Did you know there are funds that screen for fossil fuels or weapons? How about funds that promote diversity in their boards and staff?⁠ How about divesting from prisons?
⁠⠀
Have you thought about investing with people, planet and profit in mind?⁠ Have you voted during shareholder meetings?

There’s many ways to invest with your values.

After all, what's a future without healthy and thriving people and a clean Earth?⁠⠀

Divest from all violent regimes of exploitation. They serve to protect the powerful by exploiting the vulnerable.

This list is taken from a Nazi memorial site. White Silence = Violence.

It’s worth mentioning that the use of pepper spray is considered a war crime when used on the battlefield. #divestfrompoliceandprisons #defundthepolice #blacklivesmatter #fascism #militaryindustrialcomplex
