ABC7 Unite: Stories and Resources

NEW YORK (WABC) -- It has been weeks now. Hundreds of thousands of people all over the world shouting that Black Lives Matter, and the phrase, "This isn't a moment, it's a movement," has become a common refrain.

WABC-TV seeks to bridge divides by engaging our viewers with stories surrounding race and racism in our communities. A series of stories will be published under the umbrella of ABC7 Unite, and they will be found on this page, beginning with our first story from Candace McCowan (above).

Please visit abc7ny.com/unite to see all of our stories and resources.
