How to Support Black Lives Matter UK: Petitions to Sign

Updated: Jun 15


Every name counts in a petition, and these are deserving of millions. Sign your name to the below petitions and you could help free someone from an injust imprisonment, get justice for the families of those whose lives have been taken by racist police systems, transform biased and untruthful education curriculums into realistic learning resources, and help make sure that the Black Lives Matter movement continues to be one that prospers and grows, permanently.


UPDATE: PETITIONS IN THE UK WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNLESS ON THE GOVERNMENT WEBSITE. We have removed all change.org petitions from this page, but have saved them elsewhere and will be re-sharing them here, when they are on the government website.
