People have taken to social media to donate to the global movement Black Lives Matter and support the black community.

Following the death of George Floyd, many have voiced their opinions to stop the violence and racism against black people.

Most importantly, people have called for others to educate themselves on anti-racism and support organisations who work against social injustice.

What is Black Lives Matter?

Black Lives Matter was founded back in July, 2013.

Moreover, Black Lives Matter uses online petitions and social media campaigns for an end to systematic racism and unfair targeting of black communities.

Celebrities and social media influencers have used their platforms to share their voices and inspire others to help and donate to the global movement.
