Innovations of This Protest Movement

Translations, Interventions, Crowdsourcing, Innovations & more from black voices and the Black Lives Matter Movement


It seems the U.S. and the world are no longer standing for anti-Black racism and the rising of a people-powered movement for Black lives is inspiring to witness and partake in.

As our small contribution, we compiled content and resources from the changemakers, creators, healers, and dreamers whose guidance we seek to find our way into a world where people don’t have to risk a global pandemic to declare a fundamentally human right: “Black Lives Matter.” 

We hope you’ll find something new, activating, even challenging, here. And if so, please take action
