From them: Get Critical Around Discussions of Looting, Arson, and Protest

“As national media continues to report on looting, fires, and ‘riots’ ongoing in Minneapolis and other parts of the country, many Americans may have existing biases around the violence connected to these protests. However, protesters around the world have been historically called ‘thugs’ or ‘criminals’ even when they attempt to demonstrate nonviolently, but are then suppressed by armed law enforcement, as Kai Thaler writes for Foreign Policy.”

As always, follow organizations, people, and resources on social media who can offer even more up-to-date and high-impact ways to take action.
