Keep the Momentum: Follow These Activist IG Accounts

Protests against police brutality and systemic racism erupted in every U.S. state and several other countries following George Floyd’s murder on May 25.

Unsurprisingly, the movement’s initial momentum has waned a bit. It’s difficult to maintain awareness and action with a movement of this size, especially as the federal government and other nefarious forces train their eyes on it and try to dissipate demonstrations. Protests have continued in several major cities, and federal agents in Portland have reignited protests, drawing thousands. Even after two months, it’s clear the movement still has legs, evolving from a powerful explosion into a steadily burning fire.

Below are some of the best Instagram accounts to follow to stay in touch and keep your participation going within the movement. Protesting, donating, volunteering, signing petitions, calling politicians—whatever your mode is, it’s important to stay involved.
