As the music industry continues to raise awareness to social justice and reform in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the Gorillaz throw their hats into the ring with some helpful outlets.
In an effort to change a system that is seen as fundamentally biased, the animated group has launched their #BeTheChange initiative in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Dedicated sections of their website include a comprehensive resource guide, detailing ways that one can take action and learn more about racial disparities and injustice . All together, the site holds learning material ranging from podcasts, articles, books, films, and shows to actionable engagements including where to donate, petitions to sign, protest tips, and social handles to follow. The compilation serves as a solid starting point for those looking to mobilize or continue their activism.
In addition, the Gorillaz announced that all proceeds of merchandise purchases will go towards the London-based black history education charity The Black Curriculum and the acclaimed virtual band has since added #BeTheChange clothing to their online catalog which can be found here. Check out the fresh threads below.
