along with fighting to de-stigmatize mental health, for trans rights, defunding the police and rebuild a system that discriminates and criminalizes people of color for just existing. i want to try to do my part by donating to charity, sharing and creating posts and making art that talks about these issues; however i don’t feel like that’s enough. i want to do whatever i can so i created this resources page with links that will be updated as time goes on.
