Black Lives MatterCommunity
To remain silent is to be complicit, and we want to make our stance clear as a sport, as an organisation, and as a community that we are against the violence, racism, and systemic injustice that affect black people’s lives on a daily basis in the United States, here in the United Kingdom. and throughout the world.
Our leadership discussed how to respond and engage against the violence and police brutality happening to black people and their communities worldwide as they protest. We feel that a simple social media post or logo change would be little more than a hollow gesture, and potentially even distract from the importance of what is currently happening in the world right now.
QuidditchUK will be donating £250.00 to the Black Lives Matter movement, and matching a further £250.00 in donations made by the community.
We are also reviewing our practices and educating ourselves on how we can do better in our community.
Members of the Executive Team will also be donating their own money, and we encourage those wishing to contribute to do so via any of the links below.
If you’re unable to financially contribute directly, there are media projects out there such as the one linked below where 100% of the ad-revenue will go towards Black Lives Matter and their associated funds.
Give nothing to racism.
