It's been a challenging few months to say the least, and although I have been active on my Instagram, I wanted to share some of the same messages here.
Black Lives Matter.
As a weaver and human being, I am committed to doing better in my business and everyday life to fight for racial justice. I support racial and social justice, and I will continue to learn and grow and fight for justice for all.
I am committed to doing daily anti-racism work to educate myself around the racial disparities we see and how to fight for a more equitable and inclusive society.
I am also always thinking about how my own white privilege has played a role within this system, and how it has allowed me to become a weaver. Engaging in craft has become a privileged and expensive endeavor, and I want to do my best to work toward eliminating barriers for others. As I grow my business, I will offer free or reduced class for BIPOC, as well as free or reduced tools and supplies for BIPOC. I will also continue donating money or raising money for Black led organizations that are creating change.
Please know that I will continue to fight for justice, equity and inclusion while also doing my own internal anti-racism work.
Thank you for taking the time to read this,
