If you’re searching for a pandemic-safe way to meaningfully observe this Martin Luther King Day, the writer Miyah Byrd has compiled a list of ways for anyone to apply their skills and circumstances to the ongoing fight for racial justice.

Find a virtual activist training to attend. And “if you’re a person of color who needs a break from constantly fighting the good fight,” Byrd writes, “remember that self-care is a revolutionary act.”
