Black Lives Matter

In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, we stepped away from posting on social media and ‘business as usual’ last week to listen to, learn from, and center Black voices. We understand that true allyship is earned and we are committed to the ongoing fight for justice. 

We are donating to the ACLU as well as using our platform to share resources and information for those looking to educate themselves and donate time and funds to the cause. Please join us in taking action in the following ways.
