How to talk to your (non-black) family about Black Lives Matter

After the last 48 hours, one thing is clear. We can’t leave this up to black people. We’ve got to do our part.

And I'm seeing a lot of white and brown folks in my social feeds who want to do more to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

One thing we all can do is talk about it. And not just to people who already agree with us. But with everyone who really matters to us -- our parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, colleagues, college buddies, and neighbors. This is our circle of influence -- where we as individuals are better positioned to make an impact than anyone else. After all, if you can't get your mom thinking about BLM, then who can?
