We stand in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and know that we need to do better in supporting and defending Black lives. We feel we have a responsibility here on our platform to share in our knowledge, learning, and conversation surrounding our white privilege, the Black Lives Matter movement, social and restorative justice, community work, and so much more, and hope that you will join us in fighting against the horrific injustices and centuries of violence against Black bodies.
In our show notes today, and every day hereafter, we will be including links to important Black voices, organizations fighting against racism and white supremacy, places to donate, books to read, and any other resources we can gather.

"This Google sheet contains many of the community bail funds, memorial funds, political education resources, the names of organizations to put on your radar, and general advice/tips for people attending protests or using social media as an organizing tool."
We will be starting a reading and discussion group with a focus on better understanding our white privilege and how we can work to dismantle the systemic violence against Black communities in this country and across the world.

We know that self-care is a critical component of doing this work and that our space here at Buffering the Vampire Slayer is one of comfort, solace, and shared community for many of you. We honor that and commit to continuing to foster this space and our shared love of Buffy and all that the show stands for in its many forms — but want to challenge our white listeners, specifically, to remember that self-care is only a part of our larger work; if you walk with white privilege that means that after you recharge, you go back out to keep up the fight.
We love you, we are humbled as always to share this space with you, and to just keep fighting.
