Black Lives Matter
For The Many And The Few
Black Lives Matter Taunton was launched in June 2020 following public outcry at the murder of George Floyd in America. This global movement has exposed racial inequality and injustice which has been an underlying issue that has continued to plague institutions, systems and the internal thoughts of those in the UK.
Black Lives Matter Taunton are working towards elevating the voices of the oppressed, shed light on current inequalities and highlight the current organisations and individuals who are fighting racism that have been eclipsed by the limelight. BLMTaunton seeks to make positive local changes firstly on a Micro level throughout local communities – especially as racially discriminatory attitudes are specific and tenacious in rural areas – and secondly by collaborating with multiple local equality organisations that aim to affect change at a Macro level.
They aim to create positive unifying action, cultivate better education, support and transform communities and reform rural areas to recognise that people of different backgrounds andethnicities are not an imposition deemed in need of hostility and fear.
With that, BLMTaunton invites you to be a part in the movement: for the people of Taunton by the People of Taunton, for the many AND the few.
