petitions to sign, people/organizations to donate to, & other resources

12/18/20 note: hi!! sorry for disappearing and not updating this like i promised i would. school and work was a Lot as i'm sure it was for you too. anyways you may notice that there are some changes around here! let me run through them:
archived the learning/unlearning page. i've been wondering if ig infographics is really an ethical way of consuming info, especially if that's the only way we get info to learn about important world issues and movements. i've kept all the resources there so feel free to refer back if you want to look at one post or another but please be critical of the info you read from social media!archived the one-stop shop page. couldn't tell if it was actually helpful to people. it's in the archive if you still want itadded a featured links section on the home pagechanged the color bg + button colors + made them have round corners! it looks a little softer :]
all of these changes were made to return back to my previous goal of providing tangible ways for people to make change, whether it be signing petitions, supporting BIPOC and small businesses when buying gifts or daily necessities, learning/unlearning via reading, and so on. i hope these changes were productive and assist you in your journey! as always, feel free to reach out to me via twt/ig (links below) with any suggestions, feedback, or links to add :] have a safe holiday and end of the year loves! -a.

general info

this carrd is definitely more usa-oriented, but as some issues are intersectional and universal by nature (e.x. racism, environment, etc.) i hope this is useful for keeping a pulse on what's happening around the world.

be sure to save this link to your bookmarks or keep it open in a tab. i'll be updating this as i keep finding more things to add!

if there is anything you think i should include, please send them my way via dm/tagging (twt | ig)! i'd also love any suggestions on how to improve this page and on other sections/resources i should add.

new resources will be highlighted in this blueberry/purple color.

faqs/info
i'm a student from usa who wanted to collect different resources and posts i've seen floating around and put them in one place! yes, you can share this!! thanks for sharing :]this page is definitely more usa-oriented, but i do include any info about other world issues/events when i come across them. although many of the posts/resources here will be more usa-based, i hope that the info provided is still helpful since many social justice issues today are global and intersectional by nature!i had a long hiatus from sept. to dec. 2020, sorry for the wait :"(

reasons why i'm archiving the learning/unlearning page
when i first made this carrd, i wanted to collect a lot of the information i was reading on ig/twitter onto one page. but after reading more on the dangers and implications of instagram/social media infographic activism (ironically, these were also on instagram), i've decided to archive the resources i've collected for the time being. that isn't to say that the learning/unlearning should end - that is a lifelong habit we must cultivate and take with us into our lives. rather than consuming info entirely from social media, let's read and learn directly from the scholars and activists who push these movements forward.

reasons why i'm archiving the one-stop shop page
i miserably failed in updating this carrd and especially this page in the second half of 2020 lol. i also think you can find what you're looking for in the other pages!

i left these pages untouched when moving them to the archive, so feel free to peruse if you want.
just want to note that i now have mixed feelings about the popular ig account @soyouwanttotalkabout, of which a lot of their posts are linked below. some of their infographics gloss over other perspectives/issues so i've been wary of the info they post and have unfollowed them. take their posts with a grain of salt and remain critical if you decide to read their posts!

the pages below were last updated in september 2020.


learning/unlearning
right click + 'open in new tab' on any link you want to open!

take the time to educate yourself on how a long history of colonization, imperialism, and racism has culminated in today's society. listen and amplify the voices that have been silenced/ twisted/ ignored for far too long.

i created this archive of posts in case you want to reference back to a specific post or learn more about a certain topic. please do research beyond what is available here, as this is not representative/all-encompassing of each topic's information and ideas.

note: these headings are very broad as the posts in each section cover many different topics. i'll probably do some rearranging so that posts can live in more fitting sections!

additional note: many of these posts are going to be intersectional by nature but i file them under one section or another for ease. remember that all movements and issues are intersectional! nothing happens in a vacuum.

another additional note: i encourage you to read the 3 posts below! admittedly, most of the links in this section are instagram infographics, but it's also important to note what kind of activism is reflected in our consumption of these kinds of posts. i think that the ig graphics are nice and all but that can't be all we have to guide our own learning/unlearning. go beyond the ig graphics and read articles/papers/books, listen to podcasts, watch documentaries and interviews, and most of all amplify the voices of those who best understand the topic/movement at hand. (many of these infographics have those kinds of resources listed in the last slides/bottom of their posts as references!)

california wildfires/wildfire tips
thankfully, the california wildfires (summer 2020) are getting more contained as the days go on. but i still want to include this section as it's likely that california and other places in the world will face more frequent and severe wildfires with the continuation of climate change.
