Resources for the Black Lives Matter movement
Updated: Mar 10
UCLA 180DC stands in solidarity with the Black community and encourages you all to enact change and take action. We have provided various resources for students including but not limited to education on the movement, petitions, and donations/funds.
Statement of Solidarity
With the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others across the country, we are devastated at the injustice and violence towards the Black community that has been ingrained in society. We must support each other and stand with those who are affected by these events rather than remain silent. As an organization, we are dedicated to educating ourselves and showing support for our Black allies.
When crimes are committed against humanity, we must not idly stand by. We stand in solidarity with the Black community and hope to enact change by providing resources for students. We hope to share and utilize these resources for petitions and information to contribute to the Black Lives Matter movement and encourage you all to take action.
