Do better. Be better.

Black lives matter. It’s no longer silent on these deep-rooted problems and barriers, and it’s worth repeating until the day it doesn’t need to be addressed again. As the world continues to demand justice upon the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and many other innocent victims, it is time to bring more systemic change. The recent example of police brutality is heart-sickening, disturbing, devastating. It is impossible to ignore if you’re a human being. 
For people of color, it is not new. Black Americans represent only 13 percent of the American population. Black people are incarcerated five times more than white people. Black women are more than twice as likely to die from pregnancy-related issues than white women.

It’s easier to post on Instagram and feel bad, but we need more to create real systematic change despite what is on headline news. As we people share our experience and journey on this planet, we have to be better and do better. There are various ways to do so aside from participating in peaceful protests and donations. How to show better support to black friends, neighbors, activists, and businesses in small ways also count in a big impact.
Indeed these are tough conversations about racism and systematic changes, but these can not be addressed only during moments of mass protests, but also persistently and in our daily lives. 
Here at Refresh, we are a team made up of people from many different backgrounds. We value equality. We listen and participate in changes for the better.

NAACP

The NAACP is the foremost, largest, and most widely recognized civil rights organization in the United States. Their mission is to secure political, educational, social, and economic rights in order to eliminate racial discrimination. They educate the public on their constitutional rights and fight racism against Black people through the enactment and enforcement of federal, state, and local laws. 

The NAACP is currently calling on the United Nations to step up and classify the mistreatment of Black people in the U.S. by the police as a human rights violation, and aggressively calling out the U.S. government in the process.
