The Twitter voices we are listening to today — amid the protests about racism and police violence, and the social turmoil and crackdowns that have accompanied them — are the voices of Black leaders associated with the nonprofit sector.

Some of them are new faces for Generocity, others have written for us or been written about by us. One of them is part of the Technically Media and Generocity team. All of them have interesting things to say on an ordinary day. More so on these not-so-ordinary days.

Not everyone is tweeting at the moment — the toll of the events of the past week is inestimably heavy — but if you explore their timelines you will see the rich variety of perspectives this sector encompasses and offers.

All of them are worth listening to.
