Over the past week, we’ve focused our mission to be useful in the effort towards enacting meaningful change. With renewed purpose and vigor, we’ve recommitted to using our platform to amplify the diverse voices that move this collective forward, and to giving physical space to the creative minds bringing their vision to life.
In addition, here is the full list of the many ways in which our Collective is supporting the effort, including ideas for how you can be involved (in many cases, simply by supporting your favorite businesses):
A + R donated to Campaign Zero, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the ACLU and the Committee to Protect Journalists.
