#BLM Resources: More Than A Black Box

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou


The last couple weeks have been one of the largest movements in our lifetimes and in history. There has been a sharp paradigm shift from the status quo of what we as a society will accept to what we as a society will rise up to do in order to change everything from laws to hearts.
