Spellers & Allies Supports Black Lives Matter

In June 2020, following the death of George Floyd, we felt it was important to say something in support of the Black Lives Matters movement. We created a script and video collaboratively to express our support. Please share this widely for us. Change in attitude is required to bring everyone together to fight against injustice towards Black communities.
