In this time of crisis, we stand by our Black readers and members of our community — we could not in good conscience call ourselves a feminist site if this were not so. Below we have compiled a list of resources, including donation links, guides to legal rights for anyone planning to protest, and further reading for those looking to educate themselves on police brutality. Please follow friend of the site Anime Herald‘s Twitter for further donation opportunities and information.
