Find out how you can support the BLM movement in the UK using this open document, by @perkin_amalaraj.

Check out this Finimpact post about supporting small Black-owned businesses. 

Go and look at some of favourite blogger/model/influencer humans' content about BLM; Ella (aka Whimsicella), Amyleigh, NyomeBeth, Stephanie, then follow gal-dem, Rachel Cargle & The Great Unlearn, Layla F. Saad, Char Ellesse, Aja Barber, Ericka Hart, Danielle Coke, Asiyami Gold, Rachel Ricketts AND SO MANY MORE (comment with any other suggestions, please) (also, I would make a list of folks to unfollow because they're damaging and nasty, but that would give them traffic and attention, so nah). 

Right. What else? Who else? How else can I help? Hit me up in comments and/or on social media. I'm always open, darlings.
