Selena Gomez is continuing to support the Black Lives Matter movement by inviting Black leaders and anti-racist organizations to take over her Instagrams and reach out to their millions of followers directly.
Gomez made this disclosure on her Instagram page yesterday that the takeovers will begin today as they seek to amplify Black voices on her platforms.
“We all have an obligation to do better and we can start by listening with an open heart and mind.”
Gomez has incredible reach on Instagram with 178 million followers, and she has been sharing posts herself in support of the movement and wanted to do more.
“I have been struggling to know the right things to say to get the word out about this important moment in history. After thinking about how best to use my social media, I decided that we all need to hear more from Black voices. Over the next few days I will be highlighting influential leaders and giving them a chance to take over my Instagram so that they can speak directly to all of us. We all have an obligation to do better and we can start by listening with an open heart and mind.”
