Louder Than Words: Our Continued Support

On June 3rd we took a stand against racial injustice and published our initial statement in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the Black community. Every day since we’ve worked to ensure our actions speak louder than our words. While much more is to come, our monetary donation and Community Voices are our first steps in us becoming a stronger ally.

 

Community Voices

The next step in our commitment/responsibility to being a better ally. We will be highlighting and amplifying black voices within our community. Each week we’ll be hosting an IG Live with a guest who will help us dive into important topics about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

 

Episode One: Discussing Juneteenth w/ Terrence J

Episode Two: Discussing The Importance of Being An Ally w/ Evelynn Escobar-Thomas

Episode Three: Discussing the Evolution of Black Music in America

Our Commitment to Act

When we published our initial statement we made an obligation to act. This is our first short term action against that obligation. Our company as well as our Youth Foundation will donate an initial $1.5 million to amplify local and national organizations that make a difference in Black communities as well as programs and initiatives to create a more diverse workforce and progress the careers and education of many of our employees. We are still finalizing the details, however these funds will help us evolve in the right ways.
