Actions you can take right now.
Every action we take to disrupt or remedy the effects of systemic racism is helpful. We aim for The Black New Deal to inspire sweeping future reforms, as well as to connect you to things you can do today.
Check out our playbook, as well as other actions below.
If you do only one thing, VOTE! Register to vote early. Attend municipal meetings that are open to the public when you can. Join peaceful protests in your area (or create one) when there is an issue that needs to be promoted.
Be a voice in conversations about race and equality with your family, community, or workplace. It's so much easier to be quiet or ignore this topic, and many do. Instead, contribute your voice and encourage people to understand why this topic matters to all citizens.
We know that it can be difficult to figure out how to engage the labyrinth we call the American political system. But if we don't engage, significant change is unlikely to occur. Follow the link below to see our playbook for engaging the political process in a way that matches the amount of time and passion that you have today.
