3 Ways to Challenge Systemic Racism

By Sallie Krawcheck

The loss of life and intense suffering caused by systemic racism cannot be allowed to continue. The conversation that we’re having as a nation right now is heartbreaking. And infuriating. And terrifying. And (I hope) a pathway to rebuilding something new. That will only happen if this conversation turns into action.

Right now, the Ellevest team is sharing voices and resources created by Black people that we hope can help you take action.

Demand justice

  • Text “FLOYD” and “ENOUGH” to 55156 to sign Color of Change’s petitions and demand that the officers who killed George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are brought to justice.

  • Go to Stand With Bre to make calls and take action.

  • Sign a petition to demand justice for Tony McDade.

  • Email or call your city council members about legislative policy, budget, and appointment demands that will benefit Black people in your community. 5 calls provides resources on how to do this, including who to call and scripts to use when you do.

  • Vote. Nationally and locally.
