Our Stance

Our team stands in solidarity with the Black community and opposes racism in all its forms. Listening and learning to make real changes through action happens now. Watching from the sidelines is not an acceptable option. We acknowledge our shortcomings and are committed to putting in the work to create change. By using our resources, voices and privileges to amplify the voices of those who need to be heard the most, we are committed to improving and doing our part to dismantle systematic racism and injustice. Black Lives Matter.
