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

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