This has been a historic week of reckoning, reflection, and action in America. As an American manufacturer and a member of the design community, we must clearly state our support for the Black Lives Matter movement. The racial inequalities that permeate every aspect of our society are heartbreaking.
Today and every day we acknowledge the injustices caused by institutionalized racism and actively work to create a more inclusive world. We're learning alongside our community, gathering resources, and taking action to become better allies to the black community.
Here are simple ways to support the Black Lives Matter movement online and offline.
Educate yourself on racism, acknowledge your privilege, practice empathy
Sign petitions and call your representatives
Donate what you can
Research and support black-owned businesses in your community
Register to vote and participate in local and national elections
Have conversations on racial injustice with your family and friends
Read, listen to, and share black media to continue learning
We know this is all only a first step and there is so much to be done. As a brand and as individuals, we’re committed to doing the ongoing work necessary to support racial justice and fight inequality in its many forms.
