In the meantime, I’m diving into a few books to better educate myself, and I’ve made a small donation to Black Lives Matter earlier this week. I’ll be donating to Sisters Inside when my next allowance comes in, and please feel free to share any links in my comments to other places that need our help too – Australian or American or otherwise.Continue reading “Booktube Updates!”
