One more thing to note, though, for maximizing your effect: consistency.

We all know that long-term attention is a factor in getting the best results. Make supporting someone as easy as possible for you: use a calendar, app, membership platform, shopping club, whatever might work best for you. And keep at it.

 

 

Finally, here’s a non-shopping-related bonus entry from the Southern Poverty Law Center: a long list of circumstances with clear, concise examples (once you narrow down to a specific situation) for responding to bigotry in everyday situations.

Anything else you’d add? Please share! There are plenty of lists out there depending on your interests.
