  • It’s hard to feel anything but anger and disgust now but I know that we will not let the heroes that died yesterday down. Here are some ways you can help.

    DONATE AND CONTRIBUTE

    Feminist Coalition: https://donatebtc.feministcoalition2020.com/Diasporans Against SARS: https://www.gofundme.com/f/4ppyfs-diasporans-against-sars

    WRITE A LETTER TO EMBASSIES

    https://linktr.ee/Endsarsuk

    PROTEST

    Depending on where live, there are different regulations around protesting but following #Endsars on any social media platform will give you multiple options.

    Some of you may be reading this and saying to yourself this is happening to my country too. I won’t be surprised because it’s clear that what’s needed all over the world in our institutions is reform which is what the #EndSARS movement has become. In addition to fighting against police brutality, it is fighting against bad governance and corruption. It is also fighting for better jobs, education and infrastructures.

    Nigerian lives matter!

    The youth matter!

    The continuous cycle of brutality and incompetence the government, military and police have shown will not stand.

    This is not what we voted for.

    The tragedy of yesterday will not be forgotten. You might have shot at us but our voices will not be silenced.

  • So where do we go from here? Over the last 28 days, we have worked on awareness, unlearning and ways to turn this moment into a sustainable movement.

    The combined reach of the #LetsTalkBias challenge on the 8 platforms it has been run is over 650,000.

    In order to continue the conversation, I’m launching the UYD Collective. This is a collective for those who want to embark on a journey that will dismantle the systems of oppression around us. We will cry, laugh, make mistakes and support each other but more importantly, we will learn how to use our differences to make a difference. Benefits of being in this collective include access to courses, content, scripts, webinars, digital downloads, templates, infographics, checklists, exclusive tips, advice and best practices aimed at improving cultural competency and cross-cultural communication skills. Members will also be able to learn together and from each other.

    I will also be turning the videos into a course which will be launching at the end of July.

    Hope you check it out, invite your friends and family to participate and see you tomorrow for concluding thoughts.

    Use your DIFFERENCE to make a DIFFERENCE.
