Update (6/25): Our second donation to Campaign Zero has been made! This is one small step towards a brighter future for all. We will continue to listen to our community, educate ourselves, and take actionable steps to promote equality and justice. We thank you for your support in this journey!
On May 25th, Minneapolis resident George Floyd was killed by a police officer and it was captured on tape, sparking outrage all over the world. His name lives on with more than 1,000 individuals who are killed by the police every single year. For generations, people of color experience trauma, unequal justice and systemic oppression in both public and private forums. This is not a new epidemic. Historically black Americans are killed by law enforcement more than twice the rate of their white counterparts.
At LiveGlam, we believe now is not a time to be silent. That’s why we’re pledging our time, money and voice to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We have chosen to work with Campaign Zero in their efforts to promote the systemic change our country needs. Our founders, Dhar and Laura, have already made a personal donation to the cause. Additionally, from June 1st – 15th, LiveGlam will be donating 100% of our Shop profits to Campaign Zero. This will help to call on local, state and federal lawmakers to take immediate action.
Campaign Zero utilizes data-driven policy for long term solutions in ending violence and holding police accountable. To learn more about how Campaign Zero is advocating for change, visit them here.
This is the time to take a stand. Together, we can channel our outrage and energy into effective action for equality.
