Take Action with Donation!
Taking a vocal stance against racial injustice is an important step for any individual or organization, and we have been heartened to see the upwelling of support for the Black Lives Matter movement in response to recent tragedies.
However, simply stating your outrage is only one of many steps we as a society must take in order to combat the systemic racism that has plagued our nation for centuries. Another step may be educating yourself and your children by reading some of the diverse and antiracist books we have shared or by tuning in as a family to programs like Sesame Street that champion diversity.
But one of the most tangible ways to show your support will always be by making financial contributions directly to the organizations working to make impactful changes to policy at both the local and federal level or to those that directly benefit Black folks with services like therapy, rent assistance, and more.
As a company, we chose to donate to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, which aims to win landmark legal battles, protect voters across the nation, and advance the cause of racial justice, equality, and an inclusive society. All donations made by our team members were matched by Kidville.
You may choose to join us in supporting the NAACP Legal Defense Fund or by one of the many other organizations below.
