This caption is long friends. Please take a minute and read it all.
I didn’t know my mom was filming this this morning, but now I’m kind of glad she did. Because this video perfectly sums up just how easy it is to get involved in this fight for George Floyd. There are a lot of numbers, names, and resources being shared around the Internet right now so it can be a bit overwhelming to gather these things efficiently and join the fight as productively as possible. But as always, and as in most of the civil rights and racism-rooted cases that gain popularity in this country, @shaunking has stepped up and offered immense help. The link in my bio will take you to a website which provides nearly all the resources you need to get started in supporting the fight for George Floyd. There is a petition to sign, which does not just collect your name and information, but sends emails to an organized and hand selected list of officials and representatives who have the power to bring about justice in this case. There is also a call tool (that’s what I’m using in the video above), and with the single press of a button you are taken through a thorough, organized, and frequently-adjusted list of officials, representatives, and people of power who need to hear your voice and need to hear our demands. You’ll hear Shaun actually talk and encourage you through the process. Whether you take 15 minutes, 20 minites, or an hour, sitting down to make some calls and leave some messages is the LEAST we can do right now. What a privilege it is friends, that I can sit in my home, and pet my dog, and make phone calls (WHICH WERE DIALED AND ARRANGED FOR ME) to participate in this fight. At this site, there’s also information on the death of George Floyd, as well as who Big Floyd really was in life. So please, even if you’ve already made calls and signed petitions and sent emails and wrote some hashtags and posted, hit the link of my bio and use the resources there to take some action. Do it daily. Do it more than daily. Do it as much as you can. It is THE LEAST we can do.
