A Message about Racial Justice

Dear TNB community,

On behalf of the Arlington Teen Network Board, we stand in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We are disheartened over the senseless murder of George Floyd and acknowledge the privilege we have to enact change in our community. As the youth voice in Arlington we cannot stay complacent in times of injustice. We are hopeful that by harnessing our collective power we can start to make a change in our community and beyond. We have gathered resources to amplify and support the cause:

Remote Activism

Mental Health Resources

Protest Resources
