How can you help?
November 11, 2020
Although the current situation may seem bleak, now is not the time to turn a blind eye. We have an opportunity now to correct the course of American treatment of indigenous peoples. Donate to programs and charities that are working towards the community. Join others in rallies and protests against injustices against indigenous communities, both locally and globally. Although many students cannot show support in these ways, there are other ways to make changes in your behaviors and attitudes toward native peoples. Dismantle the stereotypes of indigenous persons and the cultural barriers that separate us. Be open to accept and learn about different cultures. And most importantly, stay educated on local indigenous communities and the many injustices they may face. Together, we can combat the silence and ignorance that slow change.
