The past month has been a stark and painful reminder of the urgent need to address racism in this country and continue the work of racial equity. https://bit.ly/2XcclpD

From casual comments about not “looking Jewish,” to being racially profiled by synagogue security, to being stopped for carrying a Torah, Jews of color encounter a systemic “sense of normative whiteness” writes @aptly_engineerd https://jewishcurrents.org/jews-of-color-and-the-policing-of-white-space/ via @JewishCurrents

"The reality is that aggressive, militarized policing across much of the country, combined with a growing number of protesters who are hostile toward traditional media, has made covering protests an increasingly dangerous assignment," writes @Joelcpj.

Please don't use the BLM hashtag if you’re participating in #BlackoutTuesday, so folks can access important information through the hashtag.

Last #PrideMonth, I Interviewed our icon @imMissMajor about the Stonewall Riots and how far the LGBTQ+ community has strayed from its radical foundation. In this era of uprising, remember that our movement began as a fight against police brutality. https://www.out.com/out-exclusives/2019/5/31/activist-miss-major-recounts-first-night-stonewall-riots
