Black Lives Matter activist sentenced for fundraiser fraud; took thousands for expensive lifestyle: report

A Black Lives Matter activist has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison after she was found guilty of funneling tens of thousands in fundraising donations from her organization into her personal bank account, leading to her living an expensive lifestyle, according to reports.

The BBC reported that 23-year-old Xahra Saleem of London served as the director of a charity that benefited disadvantaged youth in Bristol, called Changing Your Mindset.

Saleem was also an organizer of a Black Lives Matter protest on June 7, 2020, in response to the death of George Floyd in the U.S.

Saleem pleaded not guilty to the crime before being found guilty and has said she feels remorse for her actions.

Since the funds were taken, Changing Your Mindset has ceased operations.
