You CAN Make a Difference
Meet with Officials
Show up prepared with your list of demands
Take like-minded community members with you. Be specific with your requests. Do your research as your local officials may have community meetings already on the calendar. Be informed: your local officials may have already met some of your demands.
Peaceful protests are making a huge difference. Keep the momentum; keep demanding change.

Strike Up Conversation
Calmly share the facts with others. Share your personal experiences with racism and prejudice.
Many don't believe racism or police brutality exist because they've never been impacted by it. Some live in a bubble where their news network and friends only echo biased and inaccurate information. Be the truth they need to hear.
