Social media is a double-edged sword when it comes to political and social movements. On one hand, it can be an amazing tool to educate and expand perspectives. But if used without mindfulness, it can further insulate echo chambers and spread misinformation.

We should always be asking ourselves, what does my feed look like? How straight is my feed, how cis-gender is my feed, how white is my feed? How often am I being introduced to new ideas? Consider shaking up your social media consumption with accounts that challenge the status-quo and amplify progressive ideas.
