Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

Over the last week, we’ve been inspired by so many in our online community. Whether it’s been individuals or entire brands, we stand alongside these allies in the fight against injustice.

Since the beginning, Her Football Hub has had one mission: to champion all levels of women’s football on an international scale. When we see communities throughout the world experience pain and suffering, we cannot sit idly by.

As we have previously stated on social media, we support the Black Lives Matter activist movement. We feel that it is our duty to use our platform as a way to combat the oppression of Black communities.
