As founders of a small business, what is our brand’s role in all of this? Our first step is to take action beyond a post on social media.
We are donating $10,000 to Color of Change. And 10% of all sales in June will go to the organization. Please go to @colorofchange to find out more.
Regardless of where or how, we encourage you to take action in a way that helps create positive change. While this is our first step, we will continue to work hard to instill permanent change and continue to do more. And then more. This type of fundamental change requires us be to constant and consistent and to never stop reflecting and taking action. #blacklivesmatter #justiceforgeorgefloyd
Sarah Staudinger and George Augusto “Like so many of you, I’m pained by these recent tragedies. And I’m exhausted by a heartbreak that never seems to stop. Right now it’s George, Breonna, and Ahmaud. Before that it was Eric, Sandra, and Michael. It just goes on, and on, and on. Race and racism is a reality that so many of us grow up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can’t just be on people of color to deal with it. It’s up to all of us—Black, white, everyone—no matter how well-meaning we think we might be, to do the honest, uncomfortable work of rooting it out. It starts with self-examination and listening to those whose lives are different from our own. It ends with justice, compassion, and empathy that manifests in our lives and on our streets. I pray we all have the strength for that journey, just as I pray for the souls and the families of those who were taken from us.” Michelle Obama
