A summer of civil unrest has removed a haze that clouds the importance of social media allyship.
For many Americans–especially those from Black and Brown communities–there’s never been a more traumatic or triggering time of their lives. Navigating both an inescapable pandemic and a far-reaching racial reckoning, 2020 has proven to be difficult beyond measure.
Yet, there also hasn’t been another time in modern American history where activism has been so widespread amongst our generation. We’re using our platforms to help impact change, dismantle systemic racism, and carve out a future that we can be proud to call our own.
Part of that change is realizing that all forms of activism are essential to our cause. So whether you’re on the front lines or helping to amplify the voices of those leading the charge, both leadership and allyship are required to course-correct our existence. The latter has been the subject of much discussion.
