Kering contributes to NAACP and Campaign Zero in stand against racism
French luxury conglomerate Kering has made a financial pledge to fight racism, with contributions to the NAACP and to Campaign Zero.
The move follows after protests involving tens of thousands of people in multiple American cities and 18 countries across the world in response to George Floyd's killing by a policeman in the USA.
Kering said in a press release: “Kering and all its brands stand in solidarity against racism. Too many Black lives have been lost in the fight for equality in America. We will not stand by silently.”
Kering added: “that words alone are not enough and want to contribute to organizations focused on combating systemic racism and ending police violence towards the Black community in the United States."
