Fight 4 Change

I started my blog in 2008 with one goal in mind: to create a place of conversation. In the wake of the senseless murder of George Floyd as well as countless other incidents of police brutality, this page is dedicated to sharing valuable resources in the fight to change our country moving forward.

Below, you’ll find links to resources, stories, and ways you can support the fight. The list is not exhaustive and links will be added periodically. If you have anything to share pertaining to this page, send me a message.

Black Lives Matter. ✊🏼♥️
