Over 100 Resources for Black Lives Matter Movement

Updated: Jun 26, 2020


As protests and the strong social media presence of the Black Lives Matter movement continues, we felt it was important to help have all the resources possible for anyone looking to take action. This article has links to just about every resource you have probably seen on social media. In this document is everything from petitions, donations, to accounts to follow on social media. Of course, it would be impossible for us to have every available pertinent source, but we tried our best. To start, below are four other extensive documents with lots of great additional sources that we have not listed. Our document does not cover podcasts or shows you can watch, but those can be found in the first linked document. If there are any sources that you think are must-haves on the list that we missed, please contact us immediately and we’re happy to make the change. We hope that these resources are helpful to have all in one place with easy to click links. Use these resources and make sure to share them with friends, family, and through your social media accounts so that everyone has access to these materials.

Reflective Questions:

  1. When did I start becoming an ally and why?

  2. Who do I know that doesn’t believe in this movement? How can I change their mind?

  3. Am I posting on social media for performative activism or do I really care?

  4. What have I done outside of posting on social media?

  5. Have I checked in with my black peers lately?

  6. Where did I learn about race in my life?

  7. How can I teach others about race?

  8. How have I neglected this problem in the past, and how can I confront it in the future?

  9. Could I explain to someone else why it is important to support against racial prejudice and white supremacy in America?

  10. How can I ensure I’ll continue this activism once protests stop or it’s not “trending” on social media?
