A Black Lives Matter Resource Guide for the Boomers Who Think Reform And Abolition Are The Same Thing

Compiled, researched and written by Zoe Nochlin.

Zoe Nochlin, a LONY contributor, has compiled a BLM Master Deck to help educate yourself and those around you. The deck will easily guide you through topics such as police statistics, what defunding means, key terms, understanding privilege, understanding racism as well as numerous resources and black-owned businesses to support and much more. Even if you’re fairly educated on the subject, this can be a great resource for family and friends who are less so!

•THE GOAL OF THIS DECK IS TO COMPILE THE MOST USEFUL AND EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS SURROUNDING THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT

•MANY PEOPLE MAY FEEL OVERWHELMED BY THE VAST PLETHORA OF INFORMATION OUT THERE AND ARE UNSURE OF WHERE TO BEGIN

•IN THIS DECK YOU WILL FIND KEY TERMS/IDEAS EXPLAINED, INFORMATION, RESOURCES, ACTIONABLE THINGS TO DO, AND MY FAVORITE LEARNINGS

HOPE YOU ENJOY!
