#BlackLivesMatter – Charities you can support

The protests against the terrible murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis started on the 25th of May 2020. Since then, we’ve seen many people all around the world offering support to black people as well as demonstrating and taking many other actions that have been game-changing. There is lots of work to do still but this is a big step towards the better for everyone. We also stand for justice, equality, diversity and freedom. Thus, we want to spot for you some charities you can donate to that are doing amazing work on this:
