Justice in June [web resource]
It all started with a conversation between two best friends and former college roommates, Bryanna Wallace and Autumn Gupta. Gupta, as a person of color, but not a member of the black community, was inspired to learn more about racial injustice.
The result was Justice in June, a resource compiled by Gupta with Wallace’s oversight for the purpose of providing a starting place for individuals trying to become better allies.
“I needed to do something every day for the month of June” as a means of habit-forming, Gupta said. “Doing something consistently over time is how you change a behavior. It becomes a lifestyle over a one-off thing.”
Justice in June cultivates a community rooted in truth, inspires action and is committed to awareness.
You choose how much time you have each day to become more informed as step one to becoming an active ally to the black community— 10, 25, or 45 minutes each day— and follow the learning plan, which has links to the learning resources and a schedule of what to do each day.
You may also view the learning plans on Google Docs. Read more about how Justice and June came about in “These best friends created a wildly popular Google doc about how to be an ally to the black community” in The Washington Post.
