Black Lives Matter Support
Black Lives Matter Movement is dedicated to fighting unjust violence and racism towards black people, especially in the multiple cases involving police brutality.
Our world is made up of so many different races, cultures, and backgrounds, and that is something that should always be respected, admired, and acknowledged. We do not tolerate ANY form of racism, disrespect, or discrimination at LinQ Media Group. We proudly stand together with the BLM movement and will always support the fight to end racism and systematic oppression and constantly educate ourselves on its history and the matter in general.
Amplify, Support & Learn
Black Lives Matter movement – This is how we educate ourselves on how we can best amplify and support Black communities, people, and culture.
Educating ourselves and reading deeper into their history and understanding the barriers they have and are still facing will allow us to better advocate for them in our industry and daily lives. It will also allow us to celebrate their success, existence, and important role in our history and industry.
