24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

One of the very many ways to act on anti-Black racism is to dedicate financial resources to worthy causes like the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, and the ACLU, to name a few.
