Threads stands united with our global community in the fight against systemic racism.
On 2nd June, we took part in #blackouttuesday and paused all work activity to start educating ourselves by listening to our Black community, both internally and externally.
WE KNOW WE CAN AND MUST DO BETTER.
Now, we will be taking action. Threads has pledged £5000 to three global organisations supporting the Black Lives Matter movement:
Black Lives Matter
A powerful movement that brought this conversation to the forefront of our consciousness - a call to action & response to anti-Black racism.
Race Equality First
We want to support young and under-privileged people of all races in the UK through education.
Fair Fight Action
We believe everyone, regardless of race or socioeconomic background, should have equal voting power. This is critical to long-term political reform.
We will continue to support these organisations by donating £5 for every order. In the spirit of standing united, we are inviting members of our community to match, or exceed, our donation via Crowdfunder. All contributions will be split evenly between the three groups.
We will be creating a more diverse and inclusive community, both inside Threads and beyond. We are working as a team to put our words into action. We know we have a lot of work to do but we are committed to making a positive change.
This is where we start.
Each week, Threads will add all purchase-related donations to this Crowdfunder Page.
