NEW YORK — Crowds at rallies seeking for George Floyd consist of protesters of different races, ethnicities and religions. They have all come to take a stand together.

Although protesting goes a long way as a show of solidarity, many people wonder how they can continue to support their Black peers.

Nii Mantse Addy, head of marketing at Philo, shared several recommendations on how to be an ally to be Black community.

Recommendations include:

  • Donate or volunteer with organizations that serve impacted communities
  • Companies should invest in anti-bias training and commit to diversity equity and inclusion
  • People and institutions with privilege need to take on more of the burden of making changes and demanding accountability
