Pause. Listen. Learn.

June 5, 2020
By Lou

Our business, the company and most importantly our team are a diverse group of individuals that have come together to form something special. That diversity and recent events have shown why we need to take a stand.

We’re hitting the pause button to leave space for other voices to be heard. Important voices of justice and solidarity. We’ve decided that the best way to show our support is to educate ourselves and share how we’re learning and who we’re learning from. This list covers support groups in the UK and US, as well as the learning material available worldwide. 

For our UK friends, take a stand and write to your local MP, there’s a journalist written template for you to use here.

Support UK publications that are focused on POC, like GALDEM:
