Contextualising the US Protests: A resource

Social Supermarket
James Baldwin

During the ongoing protests globally following the tragic death of George Floyd, we don’t know what the right words to say are but we do want to help by sharing resources to provide background and context to the ongoing situation.

We acknowledge that we are all learning and will continue to do so; our mission as a company is to help support those who are marginalised by continuing to learn and by helping to educate others about such issues.
