"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist"
Black Lives Matter!
Me and my company stand by and support the protests. It fills me with extreme sadness to see the injustices happening(which have happened for a long time) around us both in the US and in Australia. It is not good enough to be silent to racism.
Even though we are half way around the world we offer our platforms and voices in support and have contributed to the Bail fund for those protesters that have been arrested.
And in our own backyard we acknowledge Australias terrible record for Aboriginal deaths in custody.
Over the past week I have shared artwork, businesses and voices of BIPOC on my social media channels as I took a backseat and educated myself on their experiences.
It has been eye opening, and at times uncomfortable, but I want to do better and be better.
I will be moving forward in my business thinking about ways that I can make Jubly-Umph a more inclusive space and will be looking at more ways we can support the fight against racism.
