Updated: Jul 29, 2020
These are hard times right now and especially for us kids, right?
I'm 16 years old and my feelings have been all over the place because of the current state of affairs in this country. There's Corona, cop killings of black people and our lives have literally been placed on hold.
I want to live but everyday I am afraid that our wants and demands will continue to be unheard until we speak up and speak out.
So I have taken a stance to get out and use my voice and my platform to protest for change in the name of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and let's not forget my cousin Bianca Roberson who was killed by a racist white man who shot her in the head while she was driving.
Being young, sometimes it's scary to put yourself out there but we have to do it. So here are 5 quick tips I can offer you if you want to march or find a way to use your voice for change.
