What Defunding the Police Really Means
We know that police don't keep us safe -- and as long as we continue to pump money into our corrupt criminal justice system at the expense of housing, health, and education investments -- we will never be truly safe. That's why we are calling to #DefundPolice and #InvestInCommunities -- and in our new video, Black Lives Matter Managing Director Kailee Scales helps break down just how it works.
How to be an ally to Black Lives Matter
The killing of George Floyd has led to mass protests which began in the United States, with crowds calling for an end to police brutality, and spreading around the world. People of all backgrounds have joined the marches to show solidarity and support Black Lives Matter. But what does being an ally of the movement actually look like? We asked artists, protesters and campaigners what advice they give to new supporters. Their answers fell into five key themes: recognising racism, calling it out, meaningful protesting, real change and education.
