One of the many things that we learned in the year 2020 is that democracy is a fragile thing.
How do we as regular citizens combat white supremacy? How do we go about demanding that the institutions that are the foundation of our democracy and government be fairer and actually represent all of us and not just some of us?
The answer for each us will, no doubt, be different, but one thing we can all do is educate ourselves. Use the list below to:
- Learn how systemic racism and classism was built into our democracy from the beginning.
- Learn why domestic violent extremists—specifically white supremacist extremists —will remain the most persistent and lethal threat to our homeland.
- Learn about how we can work to protect everyone’s right to vote, why democracies can be vulnerable and what we can do to keep ours alive and well.
