Facebook’s main office in Menlo Park, California put up a large sign reading “Black Lives Matter” Friday — days after the Philando Castile and Alton Sterling shootings, and hours after five police officers were killed by protesters in Dallas.

Facebook placed Black Lives Matters signs on different parts of its campus, as well as in multiple international offices.

Mark Zuckerberg criticized some internal vandalism earlier this year when Black Lives Matters signs were replaced with “All Lives Matters.”

The creator of the social media conglomerate came out with a public statement following the Castile shooting that was broadcasted through Facebook.

The sign displays the names Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, as well as other people who died from what civil right advocacy groups have called injustices of police brutality.

Facebook isn’t the only tech company voicing opinions over the shootings.

Many of Silicon Valley’s biggest businesses are now more outspoken on racial issues, especially since the industry was blamed for not employing enough minorities.
