#blacklivesmatter

USEFUL LINKS:

For centuries, innocent black lives have been taken mercilessly at the hands of those responsible for protecting them. #blacklivesmatter is more than just a hashtag and aims to expose the injustices faced by many people around the world. At BGMP, we work tirelessly to address such injustices and aim to proactively uplift the members of our community, particularly so for young black girls. We cannot successfully address such injustices if the system is working against us. 

 

We all have a responsibility to take action where we can to ensure justice is served, and we must all come together in support of our brothers and sisters who have lost their lives and loved ones and do our part to achieve solidarity. Use your platform to speak up for what is right and let us all create a better tomorrow.

- #JusticeForBellyMujinga - Belly Mujinga was a key worker who was spat on by a member of the public who claimed they had COVID-19. She died of complications arising from the virus and and it was ruled that there would be no further investigation into the cause of her death. The family and friends of Belly are managing the petition: shorturl.at/jpqzW
