COMMITMENT TO BLACK LIVES MATTER

We pledge to be anti-racist and to work consciously to end white supremacy and to contribute to the fight for racial justice and equity.  We will continually re-examine how we are using our resources to give voice to these principles. As we move into 2021, we re-affirm our commitment to do our part to end white supremacy's hold on US policy and its persistent presence in our communities and to support and advocate for anti-racist policies and actions, elevating black voices, businesses and initiatives that benefit societal equity and end injustice in American society.

Wealth Redistribution to Groups that Center Black People:

This is a non-exhaustive list of organizations/associations/collectives/etc. that center Black people. Most hyperlinks go straight to a donation or CashApp page, others go to a homepage on which you’ll have to search a bit for the “Donate” or “Support” button. You can also redistribute wealth locally by searching for groups like this in your area. It is also recommended to redistribute wealth directly to Black writers, educators, influencers from whom you learn, but Black people do not need to educate us in order to deserve our financial support. Reparations are owed nonetheless.

COMMITMENT TO OUR AAPI COMMUNITY

Given the heightened violence targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander community moving forward into 2021, we are committing to actions supporting anti-racism and to work consciously to end white supremacy. Below are some resources that engage with the  AAPI community to work to combat the struggles this community is facing in America.  We will continually re-examine how we are using our resources to give voice to these principles and re-affirm our commitment to do our part to end white supremacy's hold on US policy, particularly in ending hate crimes and racist rhetoric toward the AAPI community.
