As the protests for justice in the wake of the unlawful death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others at the hands of police continue, stars are using their platforms to promote action.

Lizzo took to Instagram on Thursday (June 4) to announce that on Friday at 1 p.m. PST, she will be hopping on a livestream with Minnesota's Black Visions Collective, which uses "the guidance and brilliance of our ancestors as well as the teachings of our own experiences to pursue our commitment to dismantling systems of oppression and violence."

"It has been incredible watching the amount of support, the donations and the awareness that is happening," Lizzo said in her announcement. "I think now that we're at this place where everyone is starting to wake up and educate each other, what's next? How are we pushing this conversation forward toward progress?"

"I don't even know, but I do know that there are a lot of grassroots organizations who do," she continued.

Lizzo won't be the only celebrity handing over their socials to important organizations. Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez, among others, also announced how their Instagrams will lift up the voices of the black community in the upcoming days.
