With the current state of our country and through research we have been doing at home, we will be donating 100% of the proceeds of the Tina Dress to Equal Justice Initiative.
“The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.”
After receiving feedback from customers on our face masks, we’ve added a few additional versions. Some have ties versus elastic around the ears, and some now have pockets for a filter to be inserted. We’ve also partnered with a local nonprofit to raise awareness and funds for the Domestic Abuse Project (DAP).
During this pandemic, it has become more important than ever to raise awareness of domestic violence and provide funding for those organizations who help families affected by it. DAP is committed to serving the Twin Cities community with innovative and effective therapeutic programming to end the inter-generational cycle of domestic violence. They have made it their mission to build communities free from violence by providing holistic healing for every member of the family. We will be donating 10% of all mask sales to the Domestic Abuse Project.
In response to police brutality, we will also be participating in Still We Rise’s 9th auction from June 20th-29th. We will be donating our Short Tiered Dress to raise money and awareness for:
We have anti-racist work to do. Over the last two weeks, we’ve learned our commitment to diversity in our models, inclusivity in our sizing, and charitable giving is not enough. We are still learning. We work hard to produce high-quality clothing. We work hard to pay our employees fairly and provide them with healthcare options. We work hard to do our part to close the loop in our production system. We are going to use that same work ethic to bring anti-racist practices into our business model.
We will use our Instagram platform to amplify BIPOC voices, to bring awareness to important issues, and to raise support for organizations doing anti-racist work on the ground. We will continue to support our employees who need time off to protest or volunteer. We will work to diversify our team as we grow. We will partner with more BIPOC makers in our Maker’s Alongside project. This is where we are starting – we will not stop there.
We appreciate the customers who have held us accountable, and we hope that you will continue to share. You can email Lisa (email@example.com) or Erin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or ideas of how we can continue to improve. We would love to hear from you.
Thank you for all your support, and let’s get to work.
Erin & Lisa
