Like you, we are devastated. Our hearts ache with the world right now as we face the intolerable racial injustice that still exists.
We believe in the power of putting people first. Our brand purpose has been dedicated to inclusion and freedom of expression. We believe Black lives matter, and we stand against racism.
We are committed to taking time to stop, listen, reflect, educate, support, love and donate.
We pledge this to our community:
A $10,000 donation to the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund
A long-term financial commitment to an organization dedicated to supporting Black communities and advancing the cause of greater inclusion and diversity
Provide internal educational resources, a platform for open and honest discussion, and host frequent workshops for all associates to learn and discuss injustice, unconscious bias, the eradication of racism, and how each individual can make a contribution towards the betterment of society
