The murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Officers has led many people to ask how they can help.
Ed Newton, CEO, said “It is up to each and every one of us to stand up to this injustice. We must stand up for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and for every other black person who has experienced injustice because of the colour of their skin. We are all accountable.
He added, “At City Hearts, we detest all forms of racism, we are proud to have a culturally diverse workforce. Now more than ever, we all need to step up to campaign for an equal society. To help you do this we have attached resources in which you can help the cause as well as educating yourself and others on the issue.”
