Question by Gigi, Program Project Manager
asked on 2020-06-04

As a D&I professional, I'm torn between my desire to reach out to the Black folx in my community and to give them space. I'm actively rallying for them in all ways (donations, doing my research, etc.) but it just doesn't feel like enough. How can we communicate our support directly to our communities without (a) placing the burden on them to educate or assuage or (b) making it sound like a brag? I tend to be on the more empathetic side, so all I want to do is send my love to my coworkers and peers, but I'm not sure what will help them the most at this time.
