Black Lives Matter. In a time when so many of our friends and fellow humans are hurting, one thing is certain – we must make a collective stand for what is right by taking meaningful action.
These are the steps we’re committed to taking:
Donating to the Black Lives Matter DC Legal Support Fund, and offering ongoing financial support to organizations that work for reparative justice
Anti-racist education. We will be investing time and energy into becoming better informed on the topics of racism and how to be better allies. We will share this information with our audience and community.
Supporting Black-Owned Businesses. We will actively pursue adding black-owned businesses to our service provider list and will intentionally seek bids from black-owned businesses when making hiring decisions.
Speaking out and speaking up against racism. Silence is not an option.
Standing in solidarity with our friends and family in the black community by honoring and amplifying their voices
