We stand in solidarity with the black community and the rest of humanity in demanding justice against the racial inequality that is deeply rooted within our systems.

There comes a point where silence is damaging. It is up to all of us to use our voices, our platforms, and our resources to fight the systematic oppression that is rampant in our society.

To make our position clear:
We are not neutral, and we condemn any act of racism, regardless of where it comes from.

Now is not the time to stay silent. We are committed to empowering those who are driving change. As a start, we’re currently in the thick of the protests in New York and North Carolina. We are also handing out masks, water, and essential supplies to those that are risking their health and safety in the face of increased exposure to Covid-19.

It is our responsibility as a company and as individuals to be an on-going part of the solution, leading by example for our communities and future generations. We pledge to continue educating ourselves and assisting in important dialogue around fighting for freedoms.

To the community and the Black Lives Matter movement, we stand with you. We always have and always will.

With love and solidarity,
The String and Key Team
