Ways to Stand Up for Racial Justice

*Last updated on Wednesday, July 22, 2020*

Our community is in pain. Our community is angry. Our community is resilient. 

If you, like us and many others, are outraged by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, police brutality, and violent racism, we invite you to stand up for justice. We also know that looks different for everyone. We have compiled a list of potential ways to take action and encourage you to find what is right for you. Please also note that these events, resources and actions are not organized by IJPC (unless otherwise noted) but that we support their calls for peace and justice. 

IJPC’s Rethinking Racism team is collaborating with others to organize a meaningful event that will provide space to examine and discuss the issues we are facing. Make sure you are signed up for our Rethinking Racism emails and follow Rethinking Racism on Facebook to get more details.

Attend a local event. As things are always changing, please use the links provided to get the most up-to-date information. Cincinnati.com has also compiled a list of upcoming events on their website here.

Donate and support relief and advocacy efforts. 

Educate yourself and others. Listen with an open mind and heart to black people and people of color who share their stories, experiences, and perspectives. 

Advocate and take action.
