In light of recent political events, we know many of you are wondering how you can take action to advocate for social justice and human rights.
Below is a compiled list of action items that YOU can do to help. Whether it's contacting an elected official or volunteering your time to an organization that aims to make a difference, we all need to stand together in solidarity and spread the love.
