Youseum Anti-Racism Resources

At Youseum we acknowledge that systemic racism and injustice is not just an American problem. The history of racism begins in Europe, and discrimination and disenfranchisement are alive and well in the Netherlands.

That’s why we have curated this page with links to petitions, activist groups and organisations, funds, and information relating to public demonstrations in the Netherlands, as well as internationally.

We will continue to update and manage this page as the BLM movement continues to unfold.
