This week, Feminist Hotdog is participating in Podcast Blackout out of respect for the memories of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and in observance of the ongoing fight for racial justice that is happening in cities all across the US. Please listen to today's message. It is short but important.
I am also adding my voice to the Women of Color podcast community's Podcasters for Justice campaign. It is in solidarity with these podcasters that I share this message and commitment.
We are podcasters united to condemn the tragic murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and many many others at the hands of police.
This is a continuation of the systemic racism pervasive in our country since its inception, and we are committed so standing against racism in all its forms.
We believe that to be silent is to be complicit. We believe that Black lives matter.
We believe that we have the responsibility to use our platform to speak out against this injustice whenever and wherever we witness it.
In creating digital media, we have built audiences that return week after week to hear our voices, and we will use our voices to speak against anti-blackness and police brutality, and we encourage our audiences to be educated, engages, and to take action.
