We stand with our Black colleagues and communities in opposition to all forms of racism, oppression, and hate - and lay down a marker in support of justice and equal rights. 

What we've seen has horrified the DM's community. We've spent the last week listening, and asking what we can do to stand up for what's right.

We're committed to doing more. 

As a starting point, £100K / $125K from the DM's Foundation will be split equally between the following charities - chosen by our DM's colleagues:

  • Black Lives Matter
  • The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
  • Show Racism the Red Card

This is just the first step. We know this problem isn’t fixed with money and goodwill alone. We need to do more to listen, to learn, to take action and to stand for what’s right. We will actively explore other ways to empower Black and minority voices. The input from our communities continues to push us forward. Not just today, not just this week, but always.
