Content Directive: Tuesday, June 2nd

 Tomorrow's content directive is coming at you a day early as we prepare for Blackout Tuesday tomorrow.

 Here is some copy to use as your OOO text tomorrow. Please feel free to use it and/or customize it to your liking.

 Liz has made some awesome #BlackLivesMatter ROS ads. Please pause all of your normal ads by tomorrow and put these up (at least until Wednesday morning). Link to https://blacklivesmatter.com/.

 On social, we recommend posting one of Liz's images and including text from today's email.  Here's an example of some text you could include:

 Today, DoXYZ is joining our peers from the music industry in observing #BlackoutTuesday by muting our email and social channels to create more space for dialogues and allow ourselves time for critical thought.

 We stand in solidarity with Black communities and those on the frontlines. We at DoXYZ stand against the systems that lead to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many more. We acknowledge the platform we have and vow to use it from here on out to speak against systemic violence and oppression so our city can be safe for Black, Brown, and minority communities. 

 #TheShowMustBePaused

 Please do not use the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter in your posts; it gets in the way of the voices that need to be heard most.

Attached is a black square. Please update your social icons with this square by tomorrow in observation of Blackout Tuesday. 

 Stuart will handle updating your 'Message from DoXYZ' banner. We're going to have it read...
