Statement: Support for Black Lives Matter

Leave a comment

The members of GroJIL would like to extend their support to #BlackLivesMatter, a movement that is ultimately one for basic human rights. We would like to share some different ways to help and support the movement with our audience as we believe this should be a collective effort involving people from all over the world, no matter their race, gender, sexuality or otherwise, that want to fight against racism and for equality and justice. Find the variety of ways to help below. 

  •  You can support the Black Lives Matter movement by donating via
