SBANP on Black Lives Matter

Updated: May 9

The South Boston Association of Nonprofits supports Black Lives Matter and we encourage you to join us. Below is a list of steps we’ve taken to be a part of the movement to date:

  • SBANP has had internal conversations at the Board and Membership level

  • We have shared our own personal stories and have invited folks to talk about how ‘we’ are experiencing this moment in time

  • We have organized a ‘book club’ –with a focus on anti- racist reading material…the 1st book is “How to be an Anti-Racist” by Ibram X Kendi

  • We have printed signs and banners in support of BLM and will display them across our community

  • Reverend William Dickerson guest speaking at next SBANP meeting 7/28/20 on Zoom to lead a discuss racial justice

  • Hearing his story and perspective

  • Learning more about – the Black Lives Matter Movement and how we can be allies in this moment

  • Understanding what ‘white privilege’ really means

  • What is the ‘defund the police’ effort and can we support both BLM and the Police — how do we do that?

  • Help us frame our language eliminating ‘buzz words’ and using concrete language to be part of this change – here in South Boston and beyond
