A list of resources for supporting Black Lives Matter

Below you’ll find a list of petitions to sign and resources for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. By sharing the following information, we hope to use our platform to further amplify BAME voices while encouraging our supporters to be actively involved 

This is by no means a long-term solution, but short-term actions that will help to enable lasting change. 

The BAME community are at the heart of Snow-Camp and every year since the charity was founded, we have worked hard to make snowsports accessible to all. On average, each year 75% of our young people join us from BAME communitiesSo, we know that this is not an American issue alone. But by supporting us and other amazing charities, doing all you can to increase your understanding and uniting, we can slowly turn the tide on the systemic injustice that too many people here in the UK and abroad have faced.
