A message from the LSBU Group on Black Lives Matter

As the leadership team of the LSBU Group, we firmly stand united against racism and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement
04 June 2020

The tragic killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man at the hands of the police, has caused anger across not just the United States of America, but the whole world. His death, alongside those of Breonna Taylor, Rashan Charles and countless others, is a sad reminder of the huge challenges our society still faces with racism and inequality.

As the leadership team of the LSBU Group, we firmly stand united against racism and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

A strong motive for all of us joining the LSBU Group are the values that live within the DNA of our family of like-minded institutions. London is one of the most multicultural and diverse cities in the world. And at the outset, the founders of London South Bank University (the first member of the LSBU Group) spoke not only of learning but the need to promote health, wellbeing and equality. Over 125 years later, we still live by these values and fight for social justice - looking beyond race, gender and postcodes, to make a real difference to the lives of individuals and to our society.
