Across the United States and around the world, adults and kids are raising their voices against racism and police violence. The Scratch Team stands with these protestors. Black Lives Matter. No one deserves to grow up in a society that harms you, silences you, or prevents you from reaching your full potential because of the color of your skin.
The Scratch Community constantly inspires us with how much love, creativity, and care go into the creation of Scratch projects and conversations with others. We have already seen many Scratchers showing their support of the Black Lives Matter movement with animations, poems, MAPs, studios, comments, and so much more. We are so proud to see you using your voice, your creativity, and your passion to spread awareness and demand change! We want to reassure you that these types of projects, studios, and comments are welcome on Scratch. Scratch welcomes people of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities, and we say this clearly in our Community Guidelines.
We can all make a difference by standing up for and alongside each other.
Black lives matter! <3
