This is part of our "Spotlighting Black Scientists & Ways of Knowing" series, check out the previous part on Technology⬇️
We’re sharing these threads as part of our #ScientistSolidarity Drive which ends TOMORROW, calling on non-Black scientists to support orgs/funds doing grassroots racial justice and abolition work. We're only $300 away from our (updated) $6110 match goal!

As a note, this thread is part of our #ScientistSolidarity Drive, calling non-Black scientists to support orgs/funds doing grassroots racial justice & abolition work. We're $800 away from hitting our $6110 match goal! #ScienceIsPolitical #BlackLivesMatter
