We at FiliFest, believe Black Lives Matter. This isn’t saying Filipino or Asian lives don’t matter. We simply acknowledge we have more privilege than our black counterparts and we want to express our support and solidarity for this movement.
It is not a case of other countries/races/people are more racist than us - we can do more and we should do more because there is still a disparity in our society especially for Black people. We encourage everyone to support black-led organisations either by donating or signing petitions, or even writing a letter to your MP or those able to make legal changes in our society.
We want to highlight the importance of having this conversation in order to educate ourselves and others more. We’re not saying this is the easiest of conversations to have but growth stems from these uncomfortable talks. Often we underestimate the power of talking to our loved ones but one of the most important and simplest things we can do right now is to bring them into conversation. #BlackoutTuesday.
If you'd like to help, the link is on our bio. Stay safe everyone 💙
