Black Lives Matter is a global campaign challenging systematic and structural racism. People have come together across the world following the death of George Floyd in the United States last week.

From Friday 5 June, Calderdale Council is lighting the iconic landmark of Wainhouse Tower purple to demonstrate its support for the campaign and to stand as a proud symbol of recognition for the borough’s diverse communities.
