If you have a personal website, consider following the instructions at the below link to put your page on blackout as well:

Why am I seeing this page?

This website is undergoing a deliberate blackout, in solidarity with black victims of police brutality and racially-motivated violence in the United States.

Our goal is to raise awareness of ongoing racism in the nation, and to encourage people to use their voices, and donate to organizations doing relevant activist work.

What's going on in America?

For far too long, Black people in the United States have suffered unjust treatment at the hands of the criminal justice system. This includes, but is not limited to, police brutality.

Too often, police who kill unarmed Black people get away with paid leave, and no criminal charges. We want justice to finally be served, and we want the American police system to be greatly reformed.

Why should I care?

Until our governments make considerable changes to the police system, millions of people will have to continue to live in fear of being murdered for simply existing.

Racism is still alive and well in the United States, and it can no longer be ignored or treated passively. Black lives matter, and we deserve to be able to live our lives.

How can I make a difference?

The gray section above contains links and calls to action that you can engage with from the comfort of your own home.

Protesting may be difficult during a pandemic, and can be scary, so if you decide to do it, make sure you're safe. Make sure you are properly prepared to avoid harm:

I'd like to put my site on blackout as well. How can I start?
