Black Lives Matter: How to Get Involved, Resources & Reading Recommendations

Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin, yet countless Black lives continue to be lost at the hands of police and white supremacists.

Reader Voracious is going on hiatus for the time being to focus my energy on supporting Black Lives Matter and becoming a better ally.
