Many people around the world believe that the BLM movement has nothing to do with them and that it’s just not their fight. But fighting against inequality for anyone, is fighting for a sustainable world for everyone.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” – Martin Luther King

In 2015 the UN introduced 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) giving us a blueprint to building a better world for people and our planet by 2030. Goal 10 is to ‘reduce inequalities’. The outline for goal 10 goes a bit like this:

“Empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status by 2030.”

“To ensure equal opportunity and reduce inequalities of outcome, including by eliminating discriminatory laws, policies and practices and promoting appropriate legislation, policies and action in this regard.”

All 17 of these goals were adopted by all UN Member States. Therefore, every country in the UN has a responsibility to act on black lives matter by eliminating discriminatory practices, laws or policies.

Not only do the world leaders have a responsibility to act, but all of us as individuals have a responsibility to speak up for a united and sustainable future. As a united world, Black Lives Matter is relevant to everyone.

The Black Lives Matter movement is a step towards a healthier and more sustainable world for everyone.
