Get involved and support us to help eradicate racism
We want to strengthen social and racial relationships in Britain and the wider world by improving the way we interact and embrace our differences rather than seeing skin in shades scaled on value from White down to Black. You can help lead the way by joining a collective force, a strong group of supporters, doers and helpers to directly support the development of black lives matter and work to systematically remove barriers that has previously denied inclusivity and to open up access and opportunities to black and brown people as it should be.

Our core beliefs
- We work as a non-partisan, non-political platform, however believe in the principle of a democracy and is a practice that can work to effect the change society wants and needs, however we need to create an environment and society where black people feel included enough as a value part of society and that their right to vote actually counts
- Young people have great potential if given the opportunity to shape the present and that will define the future
- Change can only exists when all the theory, all the talk and commissioned reports translate into practical and physical action.
EQUALITY: We must have the courage to stand up and speak, have the humility to sit down and listen and to do what is right, and not to walk away in to the dark of the light.
RACIAL JUSTICE: Is when non-white people receive fair treatment, equitable opportunities and outcomes. Where systemic and systematic racism no longer exist based on the colour of the human skin.
BREAK SILENCE: We must all have the courage to stand up and speak out against racism, be able to sit down and listen and be strong when it’s not easy and uncomfortable. Do our best to understand what if may be like to stand in someone else’s shoes, believe their heartfelt truth, feel their pain as if it was yours to bear and carry, see through the eyes of the people in front of you telling their story, and know racism is real.
COLLABORATION: To be committed to work together, acknowledge what you already know – that black people are treated differently from white people and if you don’t know put in the work to educate yourself then recognise black people cannot do it alone it takes a whole society to change its unfair, unjust, discriminatory, systemic and systematic culture of racism and it starts and can end with you.
