This poem and film has been produced by Don’t Settle on behalf of National Youth Trends. It commemorates one year since the murder of George Floyd. The film, the poem, and the report it points to, aims to provoke positive change for Black people and People of Colour across the globe. Through listening to these words, and learning from the insights in the report, you can be part of a movement which refuses to be silenced.
Back in October of 2020, we asked 2,000 Gen Zs what was the most pressing social issue we face as society. Their answer wasn’t Covid-19 or climate change, it was Black Lives Matter and issues of representation for young People of Colour in the UK.
A year on since George Floyd’s death, young people are refusing to let the campaign stop – momentum has been built and we must continue to promote information and action about these issues. To help you continue to share and act, we produced a report to help organisations make a positive impact about the issues young People of Colour in the UK care about.
