Blog post: Black Lives Matter
As a company that values inclusiveness and diversity, we believe that Black lives have always mattered, and always will. Although racism is a global issue that affects many, the Black community deserves all of our respect and attention right now. It’s time we acknowledge the systemic racism that has plagued our country’s history, and continues to manifest itself presently.
Police brutality is just one of the many ways white supremacy has infected our culture. Not only do we need to reallocate funds to the community, we also need structural change in our justice system, health care, education, housing, wealth distribution, employment opportunities, environmental justice, and so much more. How can we expect the Black community to compete when the game has been rigged for centuries?
We have joined protests in our city, and fully support people fighting for the cause. We condemn the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, our very own Marcus-David Peters, and countless others. May their souls rest in power.
We commit to individual and communal accountability. We are going to use our platform to advocate for these causes. We encourage everyone to be explicitly anti-racist, and educate those around them. We all have learning and unlearning to do. All lives cannot matter until Black lives matter.
