We support Black Lives Matter.
Black lives matter. Every single child is an original and should be able to pursue their passions and interests, big and small, without facing discrimination and obstacles. We believe children deserve every opportunity this world has to offer and to live their lives, every single day, unhampered by bigotry. As a company, we stand with you to make the world a better place. We strive to do this every day, one conversation at a time, with proper deference, understanding and in full recognition of the importance of this task. Our hope is that the heightened awareness that the protests are bringing to the forefront will result in profound changes in policies, laws and behavior. However, this is clearly not enough to realize the goal of unmitigated fairness and equality in our society.
To truly effect permanent change, we must all, individually, take the time to listen, learn and then act in a fashion to ensure that we are fueling this change. Our goal, as a company, is to foster these conversations, and encourage change. We can all make a difference, by our actions. As a society, it has taken far too long to acknowledge the depth of the problem of inequality. Today and every day moving forward we will continue to embrace fully the actions needed to fix this problem and do our part. We encourage you to take this journey with us. Today is the day we can all take a stand to make a real and impactful difference. No child should face daily struggles that stand in the way of achieving their dreams. We are committed to creating an environment in which every single child can shine.
