Today as we all participate in #blackouttuesday i fear the message has become confused.
Today is not the day to “take a break” from social media and simply post a black box and silence your feeds. This is not the time for an easy pass. It is a time to #amplifymelanatedvoices , to raise the voices of the black community. Now is the time for information. #blackouttuesday is to quiet the daily noise and help amplify the voice that need to be heard. So today, post and share your action plans, black organizations, black artist, post conversations with your family’s and friends. Support on the ground, stand with the movement and protest. Support offline, by calling your officials, reading, educating. If you are participating in #blackouttuesday , please avoid using the #hashtag black lives matter or BLM, it blocks important information.
Use your feed to spread information, do not be silent. ❣️
