Avril Lavigne Profile Information

  • Kendrick - Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and huge heart with all of us on my Instagram yesterday. I’ve been learning so much from you and I hope everyone else had the chance to do the same during your takeover. 
I am extremely grateful you could take the time to educate us in the midst of all you & @BLDPWR are doing to seek justice for the ongoing senseless murders, and to dismantle systemic racism. Like I said in my intro post the other day, you truly are the definition of a WARRIOR. 
To everyone else - I have saved Kendrick’s takeover as a highlight so you can hear more from him directly. His is the voice you need to hear. 
And if you’re not following @Kendrick38 and @BLDPWR I hope you will now. We ALL need to join these leaders & fight for freedom and community solutions that create INCLUSION, instead of prolonging trauma and furthering oppression.

  • In America, we haven’t ever prioritized mental health. To understand what’s happening in this country right now, we really have to understand the historical and current trauma forced on Black people. We haven’t ever had a time in our history where Black and Indigenous people have been allowed a chance, time or resources to truly heal. In fact, the systems that we accept and participate in every day - capitalism, policing, prisons, colonization etc - have explicit roots in oppression that target our communities physically, spiritually and mentally. People are energized by the #DefundthePolice movement because they see a good chance to take those funds - over 100 billion dollars nationwide - to transfer them to new community based systems that address the root causes of problems that police should not ever be required to handle (including mental health, substance abuse and homelessness). We can imagine and build new systems - a world where everyone has the care, nutrition, shelter and income they need to be well - a world that doesn’t need police. Wouldn’t that be beautiful? 🖤🙏🏽 That’s what would truly #LiberateMentalHealth #BLDPWR ⠀

Book recommendation: Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Joy DeGruy or any book written by Angela Y. Davis ✊🏽

  • Like many others, I’ve had a hard time knowing what is the “right thing” to say about the ongoing tragedies that the Black community have been facing for far too long. I’ve been following incredible leaders and important voices and learning more and more each day. One of the people whose message and leadership has resonated with me on many levels is Kendrick Sampson (@Kendrick38). Kendrick is from Houston, and is an actor and an activist, known onscreen for his roles in Vampire Diaries, How to Get Away with Murder, and most recently, HBO’s Insecure. Offscreen, his radical and unapologetic approach to activism led him to co-create BLD PWR (“build power”), a nonprofit initiative to build a community of freedom fighters within the entertainment industry to liberate oppressed and vulnerable communities. 
You may have seen or heard Kendrick over the past few weeks on the front lines of the protests in LA, on CNN and other major news networks, doing Instagram lives with everyone from Sherrilyn Ifill (@NAACP_LDF President) to Kerry Washington, or as an invited speaker at @CAAAmplify’s “Town Hall.” He is the definition of a “WARRIOR”, using his beautiful spirit to inspire others and his voice to lead an entire movement. I’m honored to have Kendrick taking over my Instagram account Friday, in order to continue educating us all. Thank you Kendrick, for your ongoing fight for justice and equality.

Caught up with @billboard last month while we were still in quarantine to chat “We Are Warriors” and all the amazing work the front line warriors are doing. Proceeds of the song and video are going to support Project HOPE’s ongoing Covid-19 efforts. ⁣⁣⁣

  • It’s so moving and powerful to see people come together right now.⁣
⁣
There is definitely a beautiful shift happening, but it’s not complete, so we must keep up the energy and pace. ⁣
⁣
We are the new voice.  The new generation.  We will generate harmony, justice and peace if we continue to fight and keep the momentum of education, anti racism, unity, equality and love.⁣
⁣
⁣
The suffering and inequity has gone on far too long.  We must continue to voice our discontent with racial injustice.  We must continue to fight for a justice system that is fair for the Black community.  And the time is now.  Forward movement is not just now, it’s always.  We can transform, learn and grow if we do it together.  Love for all. #antiracist #blm #blacklivesmatter #alwayslearning 📹: @yakooza
