Watch the USgamer Black Lives Matter Charity Stream Here! [Finished!]

We're joining with many games industry friends to support those working towards change.

Hey everyone, this is Eric, news editor at USgamer. The last week has seen a lot of tension and strife, as people throughout the nation and around the world take to the streets in protest of police brutality and racial injustice.

We made a statement earlier this week, affirming the stance of USG that black lives matter, and change needs to happen. That includes the defunding of a militarized police force, the strengthening of black voices in our industry and nationwide, and an end to the injustices that have plagued our country not for years, but decades and centuries.

While we are part of the ReedPop network of sites, we also represent the American branch of its editorial. As USgamer, these issues are ones we must acknowledge, and also take responsibility for, leading the charge for change. Alongside others in our network of sites, we want to join in not just voicing our support, but working towards a better future.

To wit, we've gathered a motley crew of personalities from throughout the industry to stream games tomorrow, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT on our YouTube channel supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization fighting to end state-sanctioned violence and white supremacy. Our lineup features journalists and hosts from IGN, GameSpot, Kinda Funny, Giant Bomb, Spawn on Me, Fanbyte, Vice, and those within our network of sites, including GamesIndustry.biz and VG247.

You can check out the stream through our channel linked here or through the embed that will be added day-of here. Jump down below for the schedule and what we'll be playing throughout the day.
