Says Eleanor on five Instagram accounts to follow: “Please please please, if you are able, COMPENSATE THESE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS FOR THEIR WORK. Educating other (mostly white) people about anti-racism is LABOR and should be PAID as such. If any accounts that you follow have linked PayPal, Venmo, or other payment platforms available, consider giving what you can if you are consuming the resources they are providing you for free.”
