In June of 2020, in the wake of protests following the death of George Floyd, the Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA) and Black Students’ Union (BSU) created the “Support Black Lives at MIT” petition.
I put together a summary of the 2020 “Support Black Lives at MIT” petition for the Women’s Independent Living Group.
For an extremely comprehensive list of resources to support BLM, here is a spreadsheet compiled by MIT’s Nu Delta fraternity. It features sections on general information, financial support, grassroots organizations, petitions, food banks, and links to other resource guides—and is available in Spanish, traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, and French. It also includes ways to chill out and take a breather, which is essential when dealing with such emotionally taxing issues.
