[07.08.16] PushBlack Now

Hey PushBlack family,

It’s been a really hard past three days.

Our hearts are heavy. We’re sending love and light to the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and to all of you.

As our news feeds, e-mails, DMs, and texts become flooded with even more violence, we encourage everyone to practice some self care. So in addition to the news, we’re listing some resources to help us make sure we take care of ourselves in times like these.
