Poetry Broadsides to Support #BlackLivesMatter

The Adroit Journal stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against police brutality across the nation. We remain outraged at the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery: the latest victims in the United States’s culture of white supremacy. Silence is not an option, but speaking up and merely saying “black lives matter” is not nearly enough either. In an effort to provide continued financial support to organizations seeking to combat oppression of Black people in the United States, 100% of proceeds from all purchased Adroit broadsides will now be donated to your choice of one of the following organizations

To donate, click here, add broadsides to your cart, and add the following item from the list to your cart with the charity of your choice selected:

*       *      *

We also want to encourage taking action in other forms, whether it’s engaging in protest, putting together (and reading) an anti-racist reading list, joining our friends on The Offing’s list of literary magazines standing in solidarity with #BLM, signing petitions targeted at advancing racial justice, or supporting local Black-owned businesses. 

All of us, we hope, will use this moment to accelerate the long journey to justice. We thank you for your readership, continued support, and your efforts in confronting anti-Blackness in the United States.
