Racial Equality Resource List

Racial equality is important at Flyght. We’ve taken the last couple weeks to reflect on our allyship with the Black community. We recognize that there’s more we can do, and it’s important to us to share what we’ve learned.

Below is a resource list that’s broken down into 6 ways we can become better allies. We’ve also created a downloadable PDF here. We hope that you also take equality seriously, that you’re learning and sharing as much as you can and that this list will help you push a little farther out of your comfort zone.

Educate Yourself and Others

Knowledge is power. It’s important to understand why people are angry to know how you can best help. Even if you don’t want to personally get involved, we hope you’ll take the time to learn about how and why we got here.

Sign A Petition

Signing a petition is the easiest way to get involved. It only takes a few minutes and you don’t even have to leave your home. Here are a few petitions to get you started.


Voting matters. It’s easy to look at the numbers on a television screen and think, “My one vote won’t change anything.” That isn’t true. Consider how many other people feel the same way. Those votes (or lack thereof) add up. Voting is your opportunity to directly enact change in the government. If you don’t vote, your voice isn’t heard.

  • Register to vote.
  • Why voting matters.
  • Research local and state candidates and issues.
    • Your local and state officials have a far greater impact on you and your community than federal officials. Local officials decide things like how your business can operate, how much training police officers get, where funding goes. These decisions affect your everyday life.
    • Lawmakers will often slip personal agendas into a bill, even when it doesn’t necessarily fit with the nature of the bill. Do your research. Know the ins and outs of what you’re voting for.
  • On a federal level, it’s important to vote for someone who aligns with your core values. iSideWith is a non-partisan site that gives unbiased results based on your responses. The more questions you answer, the more accurate your results will be.

Support Black-Owned Restaurants And Businesses

Where we spend our money signifies what’s important to us. Successful communities support and uplift each other. It’s our responsibility to help Black-owned businesses gain the same exposure as everyone else.


To make a larger impact, donate to organizations that are committed to improving Black lives and enacting policy change. Monthly contributions are more impactful than a one-time donation but every little bit helps.


Active participation is the most impactful way to combat racism and there are many ways you can participate.
