The past few months have seen hundreds of Black Lives Matter protests across the globe, many sparked by the murder of George Floyd and many other black men and women. Millions of people are taking a stand against racism in significant ways on small and large scales.
Check out more information about the Black Lives Matter Foundation on their website https://blacklivesmatter.com/ where they share about their organisation:
#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centring Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.
