“Solidarity is supporting people and standing up for what’s right even if you aren’t a part of it. Just to support people that are being denied their basic human rights. Solidarity is being an active ally, like guys showing up to Women’s marches or white people showing up to Black Lives Matter rallies. It’s all about acknowledging your privilege and using it to give people a voice.

People can show solidarity through social media and everyday actions. Actions speak louder than words, so you need to actively participate. Be kind and listen to everyone and fight the little injustices, because small things like microaggressions all feed into injustice.” –Jess Fahrney, University of California
