Color of Change

This online racial justice organization is made up of nearly two million members and designs campaigns that it describes as building "real power for Black communities" and championing "solutions that move us all forward."

Black Visions Collective

Also known as BLVC, Black Visions Collective is a Black-led, Queer and Trans centering organization located in Minnesota whose mission is "to organize powerful, connected Black communities and dismantle systems of violence" through "building strategic campaigns, investing in Black leadership, and engaging in cultural and narrative organizing."

"These organizations can help you figure out what your next steps can be, or if you just need to get information to gather to be able to have these uncomfortable conversations with your friends," Parker added.

"E! stands in solidarity with the black community against systemic racism and oppression experienced every day in America," the network said in a statement on May 31. "We owe it to our black staff, talent, production partners and viewers to demand change and accountability. To be silent is to be complicit. #BlackLivesMatter."
