Black Lives Matter

At this fraught and emotional moment, thousands are on the streets demonstrating, organizing, and standing up for Black life in the US and around the world.
We cannot be silent.
Aperture stands with the Black community and we assert that Black Lives Matter.
We mourn the loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many other Black people, who were loved and cherished, and whose lives were brutally taken away. We honor them and we honor their families.
We reject racism, injustice, and violence.
We condemn the abuse of power.
We believe that art can be a force for change and inspiration.
We champion photography as an expression that elevates truth and empowers artists.
We are proud to publish and collaborate with Black artists, authors, scholars, editors, and creatives.
We affirm our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive platform.
But—we can do better.
And, if we believe in equality and inclusion, we know that our words—our values—must be met with actions.
Recognizing both the urgency of the moment, and that the work of anti-racism is a long-term commitment, we have compiled some resources below. We hope you will consider donating your time, energy, or funds to the following causes and organizations doing important work in this space.
We hope you’ll stay with us as we continue to seek meaningful and productive ways of responding to what’s happening around us every day.
We hope we can envision a better world together.
