If you’re anything like us, skateboarding has been the last thing on your mind for the past few weeks, and with good cause. However, as things are slowing down and everyone’s minds start wandering back to skateboarding, we want to remind everyone that there’s still meaningful action you can take if protesting isn’t an option.
- If you’re lost when it comes to Black Lives Matter and don’t know where to begin when it comes to protesting and donating, Frog built out a handy round-up of tips, fundraisers, racial justice organizations, and black-owned businesses to support.
- Patrick Kigongo also made a great directory of black-owned brands, retailers, and companies in skateboarding worth supporting.
- Quartersnacks dedicated last week’s Top 10 to essential reading on racial justice.
- Finally, thanks to everyone who bought from the Theories webstore last week! Thanks to your support, we were able to make sizable donations to The Bail Project, Fair Fight, and Reclaim the Block - three great organizations fighting to make communities safer and healthier for people of color and ensure fair and equal elections nationwide.
