H&M has donated $500,000 USD to NAACP, ACLU and Color of Change that are working to fight racial discrimination in the US.
The recent killing of George Floyd in Minnesota has sparked protests all around the world including Paris and London. The current protests have resulted in many arrests which may require money to seek bail.
In their Instagram post which had ‘Let’s change’ as the words on a white background, the caption read ‘We believe in equal rights for everyone. We stand with and support the Black community – today and every day’ with the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.

We believe in equal rights for everyone. We stand with and support the Black community – today and every day. We understand that this goes far beyond a social media post. We’ve learned the hard way how much work we still must do to live by the values we believe in. We’re committed to using our voice and influence to do our part and stand up against racism and discrimination. Today, H&M group will donate 500 000 USD to @naacp, @colorofchange and @aclu_nationwide. We support these organisations in their efforts for justice, economic rights and democratic empowerment. Let’s change. Together. #BlackLivesMatter H&M
