We at Tree City Records fully support the Black Lives Matter movement and the demand for justice and equality for black people in the United States. The preventable deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other African-Americans have sparked a fire in this nation. People all over the world are calling for an end to police brutality and violence, and a dedication to equal justice in law reform.
What is Black Lives Matter?
"#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives."
