GEORGE FLOYD: ONE YEAR ON.
It was the day the world woke up. 25th May marks one year since George Floyd was murdered. In plain sight. Derek Chauvin has now been prosecuted for the murder of George Floyd. Activism does make a difference.
But people are still being murdered. Ma'khia Bryant was shot 4 times in the chest by the police in Ohio. Just hours before the judgment was announced.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
George Floyd’s murder inspired Tamika D. Mallory’s momentous ‘speech of a generation’ – a rallying cry for change. We joined forces with her to put her powerful words on fundraising T-shirts.
Tamika’s charity, Until Freedom fights against systemic racial injustice throughout America.
Solidarity Series is an ongoing series of T-Shirts to fund those on the frontlines of the fight for a world with a future. To bring activists together, and spread their messages.
THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Today’s systems and structures are still failing black lives.
Our ambassadors and allies are fighting for freedom – with civil action, movement and poetry. We must learn from the work of Tamika & Until Freedom, Nemonte & Amazon Frontlines and Black Lives activists across Europe. With real understanding, we can take meaningful action.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
We as individuals make up the system. We each have the power to drive change. But we must first LISTEN. LEARN. FEEL and ACT. Below, you’ll find just a few ways to help out – right now. Never underestimate the power of YOUR voice. Use it to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, wherever you are in the world.

A MOVEMENT, NOT A MOMENT
The battle for Black lives goes on. We want to express solidarity with everyone taking a stand against injustice. Keep listening and learning. Revolutions take time, dedication and action. Keep your ears open. There will always be new ways you can help.
We‘ve always been committed to making ARMEDANGELS a diverse and inclusive business, but there‘s still much more to do. We all have an ongoing responsibility to listen, learn, unlearn, reflect, and to further take action, so we can be part of the change. We’re reviewing everything we do to ensure diversity and inclusion is embedded across all areas of our business and brand.
