In the wake of the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, we have seen our community come together in a powerful movement.
For many, this movement has sparked questions on how to get involved and support this cause.
We worked diligently with our community partners and fans to put together a resource guide on how to support black New Mexico. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we encourage everyone to add to it.
If you know of a black-owned business, organization, or artist that we need to add to this guide, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
