Another new month is upon us and rent is due. This means allies and white folk can redistribute their wealth if they have it. This is commonly done for content creators who are Indigenous, Black, Asian, People of Color. You can find your favorite's donation link in their bios or ask them how they can help amplify.
Big or small, it all matters.
If you are a person with intergenerational wealth, find ways to meaningfully redistribute it back into those who have been disenfranchised for generations.
Stop giving to non-profits where resources are withheld from those who need them, and challenge yourself to give directly to the people instead. Pay a person's rent, bills, debt, groceries.

No excuses.
