In The Wake of Tragedy: Resources for Coping and Acting

The night after I watched the video of Alton Sterling being shot in the chest, I couldn’t sleep. I got up the next morning and wrote about it. As I closed the document on my computer, I saw the news that Philando Castile had been killed during a traffic stop. Before I could even begin to process these tragic events just a day apart, I woke up today to see that five police officers were killed in Dallas. I’m still working through my feelings regarding these senseless deaths. I didn’t want my silence to be mistaken for not caring, so I’ve compiled a list of resources for you here. I’ll share my thoughts next week. In the meantime, I hope these are helpful.
