Black Lives Matter
We stand in solidarity with our employees, customers and suppliers in the fight against racism.
And although the tragic murder of George Floyd in the USA is what recently caught the world’s attention, as an international platform, we understand that the issue of racial injustice affects people all over the world, including in the UK where we are based. We also know that this isn’t a one-time event and that, whilst this event has gained the exposure that it has, racial injustice reaches far into the annals of history.
We are standing in solidarity with millions across the world and we acknowledge that this is an ongoing movement and we pledge to actively take steps towards creating change, starting internally. We are committed to utilising our platform and resources to raise awareness and work towards equality in a productive way.
As such, LuxDeco has donated to Black Lives Matter and the George Floyd Memorial Fund to show our support of key organisations and of their efforts to combat racial injustice. We encourage you to do the same whenever you can. We also encourage personal education on the topic (please see our resources listed below) as well as other actions including signing petitions, writing letters to local authorities and pledging to support anti-racism organisations.

Funds we support
The organisations which support the Black Lives Matter movement have already done a tremendous amount of work in the fight against racism, often without a lot of monetary support. They need donations now more than ever if, collectively, we’re to take advantage of the current momentum and root out racism once and for all. Please consider donating to these organisations who we have donated to and who we believe are essential to furthering this work.
Further actions we can all do
Good intentions or even intermittent donations aren’t enough; we know that we must also act. That action might take the form of educating ourselves, peacefully protesting or signing a petition. Better yet, it will be all of those things and more. Please use these resources to educate yourself, retrain your mind to be vigilant of injustice and support the movement with actionable measures.
