#BlackLivesMatter: Here’s Ways You Can Get Involved In The Movement

#BlackLivesMatter: Here’s Ways You Can Get Involved In The Movement

This week has been upsetting and unsettling, to say the least. If you don’t know what has been happening, we encourage you to look up George Floyd and the cruel injustice that was brought upon him and the African-American community.

However, George is not the only person we need to fight for. Everyday African-American’s are treated poorly and differently just because of the color of their skin. It’s the sad, harsh reality of the world we live in, but it HAS TO STOP. Enough is enough!

It is these injustices that we are wanting to address, more so, how you can get involved in the #BlackLivesMatter movement and why it’s so important.

The Honey Pop would like to remind you that while we try to only list credible sources, when signing petitions please be aware of the petition source. Some people try to take advantage of these situations and some fake GoFundMe pages have been surfacing.

Also, when signing on change.org (which is an amazing website for petitions,) try to save your donation for a source that will go towards helping the cause as Change.org keeps the money for their site. Just share the petition to your social media, and that will allow your donation to go towards supporting the cause.

The Most Important Thing You Can Do Is SPEAK UP!

Your voice is your most powerful weapon. Your voice can make changes. It can make a difference, but you have to speak up. Speak up for what is right, speak up for injustice. We all must come together to better the world, and put an end to racism, police brutality, and all other injustices faced in the world today. We are in this fight together.
