Neutrality and Silence are Complicit.

We stand in solidarity with Asian American Communities demanding that we #StopAsianHate.

For an equitable and just economy, physical safety and financial security are must-haves. What happened in Atlanta this week was an undisputable example of gender and race-based violence. It has no place in our society. We must condemn misogyny, racism, and xenophobia and stand together against the normalization of hate.

We are committed to reversing this trend by recognizing prejudice when it shows up in our workplaces, our neighborhoods, and our economy. We stand in solidarity with Asian American communities as we grieve unacceptable and avoidable losses and confront our own role in dismantling white supremacy until all feel safe.

Resolving centuries of oppression cannot be done alone.

And no one can stand idly by—neutrality and silence are complicit.
Here are steps we are taking with our hearts, our minds, our wallets, our voices,
and our votes to create a more equitable world.

With our hearts
  • Practice compassionately listening. One place to start, the 1619 Project podcast from the New York Times, which places the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the center of America's birth story
With our minds
With our wallets
With our votes
  • Be a steward for democracy: vote and advocate for yourself and those that are underrepresented, especially with local elected leaders. Check to make sure you’re registered to vote at vote.gov.

B Lab, the nonprofit that powers certified B Corporations, created a thorough guide of Anti-Racism Resources.
