1. Educate Yourself. I have researched and watched documentaries on systematic racism in our country. When you hear the words systematic racism, what does that mean to you? Do you understand what it means? I recommend that you watch the documentary 13th. It is a powerful look at history of oppression in our country. It is eye opening.
2. Use your Platform. My platform is not huge in comparison to many other's, but this blog post to my readers is my first step using my platform to educate and speak out for change in our country. I am putting all other writing projects on hold right now and dedicating my time to this cause.
3. Vote. Once again, I'll repeat to educate yourself before you vote. Don't blindly follow anyone or any party. Have you ever heard of ALEC? Do you know the role they play in making laws in our country? Do you know who their members are? Educate yourself.
I've included a link below on how to register to vote.
We can't sit by silently. It is time to act.
