[Facebook is not letting people share these links for some reason, so I am copying the post here. I removed tags from the people to whom I’m crediting the content because this is a public page. Happy to put your name & blog back in here if you are comfortable with it.]

Woke up to the infuriating and heartbreaking news about ‪#‎PhilandoCastile‬ this morning. Lots of people have posted good content that is worth the time to read. Rather than posting them one at a time, I put together this list. But also, there is lots of great stuff I can’t share in this style because it was recorded live via FB or posted directly to FB and the platform is not set up to allow sharing of these things other than individual posts. Plus this is literally just what was on my tl this morning.
