Black Lives Matter

As a white person I am committed to the continual work needed to unravel my role in the systemic racism from which I benefit. My reality is biased and I vow to unlearn. #BlackLivesMatter #BlackTransLivesMatter

Here are some essential resources and organisations who support the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK. This is by no means an exhaustive or comprehensive list and I do not claim to be an authority on the movement. This is an act of solidarity, which aims to contribute to the distribution of information, and share ways in which you can support the Black Lives Matter movement. The list is UK focussed, which reflects the majority of my audience.
