Hollywood celebrities, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, and others invited Black leaders and anti-racist organizations to take over their Instagram accounts to spread more information about the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.
Giving the black leaders a platform to reach out to their millions of followers directly, Gomez and Gaga made the announcement on their social media accounts. Selena was the one who kicked things off on June 6 and introduced Alicia Garza, co-creator of Black Lives Matter.
Celebrities are doing their best to seek justice against the brutal killing of George Floyd, in an attempt to raise Black voices on social media and to get people to know more about the ongoing protest.
"In order for us to change it, we got to join a movement, We all have to stand together and say, 'We won't take it anymore and here's what we want you to do instead,'Garza stated. "We all deserve better and when we're organized and when we have a plan, we can actually change the things that we don't like in the country so that we can make it right."
Lady Gaga shared a post in which she announced that she will give over the Instagram account to the organizations including 'Loveland Foundation', 'Black Lives Matter', 'Campaign Zero', 'Marsha P. Johnson Institute', and others. "I'm giving over my Instagram account to each of the organizations I've recently donated to, in an effort to amplify their important voices," she wrote.
Meanwhile, Lizo spoke with the Black Visions Collective in Minneapolis to spread awareness about the protest and how her 8 million followers can help join the fight.
