Black Lives Matter

It feels wrong to sit here in silence. We can’t be silent about something so important.⁣

A Weathered Penny stands in solidarity with everyone affected (not just at this time, but always).⁣⁣
We stand side by side with everyone in the belief that doing everything we can within our power is how we can make a real difference.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
No matter how big or small, we should all use our voices and platforms in anyway we can to make a change. Continue to speak out and put an end to all forms of racism.⁣⁣

Standing up and speaking out is just the first step.⁣⁣

In this journal post we have put together some very useful resources. These include information on petitions to sign, groups to support, important literature and places to donate.

In addition to the our continuing efforts to support the cause and educate ourselves, we will be donating to several charities this week.⁣⁣
