The death of George Floyd at the hands of a white, Minneapolis police officer has sparked protests against police brutality and racial injustice worldwide. These protests are not just about George Floyd’s death, or even the deaths of Breonna Taylor or Ahmaud Arbery.
This kind of violence is not new. Activists and individuals have been working for a long time to raise awareness and effect change. The visibility of this moment has led many people who haven't been involved in the past to ask: What can I do to help?
