We as adults have to work harder to fix this world that we, for too long, have left broken for our kids. We as a company and we as a community have a lot to learn, and we will be working closely with our team members to listen, learn, and act to ensure no voice is ever silent.
This is an open letter shared with our employees. We stand with Black Lives Matter.
Below are the current resources that we are exploring at the moment. This is an ongoing conversation and we are listening and learning. We invite you to share any additional resources that you have found inspiring.
