Due to the hyper-visibility of systemic and interpersonal violence against Black people that is being widely protested and debated across the nation, we want to offer a space for Black users to vent, reflect, and support each other here.
We here at Scarleteen want to acknowledge the emotional burden that these conversations and current events can have on our users, and offer any love and support that we can. Your life matters, and your mental health and wellbeing do too.
Please feel free to use this space however you'd like, and our staff and volunteers will only respond if we're needed. If you're a non-Black user, please refrain from posting here, as we want to create a space specifically for the community being affected right now. If you want to be a part of a discussion about how non-Black folks can be allies during this time, please join the conversation here.
