Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter.
We will stand with you better.
We haven’t done enough.
We won’t give up.
We will give and grow love.
We will listen, make space (and mistakes).
We will out and be outed.
We will stand with you, rooted.

For now, some (of many many) books for reading / podcasts for listening / stuff for watching / artists, activists & organisations for adoring & supporting:
