We live in a country with a history of white supremacy that has infiltrated virtually every part of the private and public sector – in business, politics, education, and our homes. This systemic problem has manifested in rampant racism and horrors we've seen time and time again such as the recent murder of George Floyd.
IT MUST STOP NOW!
We MUST lock arms with our black brothers and sisters and fight racism in all its forms – from the subtle to the brutal – because we ARE brothers and sisters.
- We MUST keep racism top of mind and continuously relook at all our daily practices and ask ourselves, “What should and could I do differently?”
- We MUST judge people first and foremost by their hearts and actions, never by the color of their skin, and yet embrace the wonderful differences we all have.
After all, what’s at stake is the future of the country we so badly want to be proud of, and a little thing called humanity.
Since launching in December, we’ve partnered with organizations that are in keeping with our ethos, like Global Citizen for its work on issues such as equal rights, human rights, and environmental rights, and Women’s March for many of the same reasons. In light of recent events, we too have asked ourselves the above question. Therefore, we will continue to use our platforms to share their messages focusing more on racism and social justice. In addition, we will support through a donation to and sharing the work of the NAACP and are actively working to align with other organizations to ensure this all-too-important message is heard fully, effectively, and powerfully.
In other words, you will Hear Us Raw...even more.
Thank you for your support, spreading the word, and spreading the love.
