Black Lives Matter Resources

My heart breaks for our black friends. In my privileged life, I will admit that I didn’t know how much I didn’t know. In an effort to become a better ally, I have dove head first into as much research as I can, and have been led, to many great resources through the emotional labor of black sewists in the sewing communities I participate in on facebook. I’m hoping to compile and share those resources here so we (non-BPOC) can continue to learn, and make a conscious effort to change our ways, our systems, and our communities. We MUST do better.

I will continue to add to this list as more resources are discovered.
