Black Lives Matter UK (BLMUK) announces that it is releasing £600,000 in funding to grassroots groups working for Black communities.
These funds constitute 50% of the money the volunteer-led organisation crowdfunded via GoFundMe over the summer of 2020.
The money will be awarded in two phases – the first set of funds have now been distributed. This first round has seen just over £169,500 given in small grants to organisations BLMUK has worked with over the last five years.
