Leeds University Union stands in solidarity with our Black students, Black staff members and the Black University community in the fight against police brutality and racism. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Equality is the responsibility of us all: it is important that we use our voices and all offer our support. Now is a time for those affected to be able to protect their peace but it is also a time for many to listen, learn, and become better allies.
Throughout this week we will be sharing resources for the Black University community to stay safe if anyone chooses to join a protest, as well as resources to help care for your mental health.
As the first port of call, you can refer to any of the following (all external links): LUU Help and Advice Team, Touchstone, the Racial Justice Network and The Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN).
