Black Lives Matter Resources

Listening, learning...


Change doesn’t start and finish with posting a black square. We can either run away from change or move towards it.

Our first step will be to listen and learn before we take action. To do that we need your help so that we can understand what we can do as a community to create lasting change.

Here are some resources that our team, our community have found helpful inspired by the list put together by Psycle London
