We stand by those who are fighting for justice against police brutality in the US. Furthermore, we stand in solidarity with those who fight against racism, inequality and injustice across the globe on a daily basis.
We have a duty to be actively anti-racist. We must continue to read, listen, discuss and educate ourselves on racism, systemic racism and white privilege.
We have compiled a list of resources, charities and petitions below that we have found helpful…
“I appreciate that Black History Month is necessary at the moment, but the ideal situation is that there wouldn’t need to be one.”
