The only way to fight racism is to be actively anti-racist—educate yourself, speak up, donate, take action. There is no neutral position on racism.
We stand in solidarity with the fight against systematic oppression of the black community and are committed to creating visibility into the black experience + ending racial injustice. We believe the only way to fight racism is to be actively anti-racist—educate yourself, speak up, donate, take action.
We are starting with a donation of $50k to organizations that support the fight against racial injustice—and are committed to another $100k before the year ends. See below for a list of the organizations we’re making the first donation to.
We believe in the power of representation and are committed to expanding diversity in everything that we do. We don’t know the answer to everything, but we are committed to continuing to learn and have honest discussions with our community about how we can amplify black excellence.
