Black Lives Matter – Petitions you still NEED to sign!

Introduction

As we continue to protest and campaign in support of Black Lives matter worldwide there is still a lot more needed to be done to help make a difference. Despite the ongoing strides in battling against racism there is still incidents not being appropriately reported, murderers not rightly being sentenced and bigoted individuals fulled with hatred still harassing innocent people on the daily.

I wanted to use my platform to help those people who want to educate themselves on the big issues and help contribute to make the difference. This is why I have set up a clear page dedicated to the Black Lives Matter campaign. There is a clear and easy way to access the theme as it is on top of all my pages in the header. Inside the page there will be articles dedicated to ways in which you can contribute to the cause and make a difference.

Articles like this one where we will be exploring different options of how you can help out. Todays post is about important petitions that are set up to fight for justice and Influence positive change in our society and they need your signature.

If you wish to find out other ways to make a difference you can read about ways you can educate yourself on the matter here: Click here. If you wish to donate to relevant causes fighting for justice you can find links here: Click here.

Here are links to important petitions still needing your help:

A really important petition that I believe NEEDS to be signed and is astounding to even think it isn’t already which is the petition to make the KKK a terrorist organisation, making it illegal. If you were to sign something today I highly suggest it be this one. Join the other 1,000,000 people signing for change and make the white supremacist hate group no more. I will now attach a link where you can sign the petition to abolish the KKK for good: Click here to make the KKK illegal.

I feel by attaching threads from Twitter is a simpler way to format it and access these petitions so I will attach more Twitter threads with links to a variety of different petitions that still need your help!

Black Lives Matter: How you can educate yourself

Introduction

No matter who you are, what your background is, everything you think you already know, you are still far away from seeing the full picture. With many crimes crimes and injustices happening everyday the list is endless throughout history. You can educate yourself about police cases today with a range of petitions currently set up to help people who have been wrongly sentenced for crimes they did not commit.

Films and Documentaries to educate yourself

Although there is a range of amazing books on offer to educate yourself further about the history or the issues regarding race. This is why I wanted to create a blog post dedicated to spreading awareness about what educational resources you can use to learn more. So firstly I will talk about documentaries on the popular streaming service Netflix. I’m aware Netflix has helped others like me during lockdown binging new shows and reliving your favourite ones from the past. Netflix also has wide collection of incredible documentaries and films that covers some of the biggest historic events that have taken place. So I wanted to shine a light on some really interesting Netflix series you can watch to educate yourself with the history of black people and racial discrimination as a whole.
