Please stand in solidarity with us as we urge the fashion industry, major fashion brands, fashion publications, fashion media and fashion influencers to break their silence on racial injustice, anti black hate crimes and the brutal killing of black people. • • • The fashion industry is one of the most influential industries and must use their platform responsibly. The police brutality and murders of unarmed black men and women is not a Black Issue, it is a Human Justice Issue. The Fashion Industry must take a stand and speak up for Justice. You must choose a side to stand on- the side of racial justice or racial injustice. If you choose silence, you are choosing to stand with racists. If you are not racist, you must break your silence. Human lives are hanging in the balance. Please use your platform to stand up for humanity by standing up for Black Lives. RACISM is not socially acceptable. MURDER is not socially acceptable. SILENCE is not socially acceptable. • • • Please stand with us by reposting the image above on your main account and use the hashtag #BreakingTheSilence: 1. Tag fashion accounts that have not broken their silence on the Racial Injustices, Anti Black Hate Crimes and Black Genocide happening in America right now. 2. Urge the fashion accounts that you’ve tagged to “Break Their Silence” on their social media platforms and speak up about racial injustices. 3. Tag @fashionforallfoundation so we can share. • • • • • #BreakingTheSilence #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForAhmaudArbery #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor #JusticeForSeanReed #StandUpForHumanity #FashionForAllFoundation

WWD is covering the demonstrations and protests across the U.S. in the days after George Floyd was killed in police custody. See our complete coverage on WWD.com. Here is an excerpt from our latest story. A nation in anguish. Protests have escalated across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Large groups of demonstrators took to the streets once again in Minneapolis and across some of America’s largest cities on Friday and Saturday, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami and Philadelphia. The protests started off peacefully, but some became increasingly chaotic as night approached, with looting and throwing objects at police.⁣ ⁣ “In the last few days, both our city and state law enforcement capacities have been overwhelmed by simple math — an overwhelming ratio of rioters that even our unified effort has been unable to push back,” tweeted Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Saturday.⁣ ⁣ Martin Luther King III, son of Martin Luther King Jr., tweeted on Saturday, “The country has to come together to say to elected officials and policy makers that enough is enough.” 📸: @shutterstocknow
