Black Lives Matter
We do not support acts of racism, bigotry, or injustice of any kind.
We are deeply saddened and angered by the tragic events of recent weeks. The ongoing systemic racism that plagues our country and punishes Black Americans needs to end.
With determination, and the work of organizations such as ACLU, we make meaningful progress eliminating inequality from our communities. We need change and it has to start with each of us. Black Lives Matter. We have and will continue to dedicate a portion of Salmon Sisters sales in June as a donation to the ACLU. We have stayed quiet, listening and learning on social media during June in order to amplify the voices of leaders in the Black Lives Matter movement.
Looking forward — all efforts to continue to listen and learn are paramount — we are working with partners to help educate us in our allyship towards marginalized communities.
Here's how you can join us in taking action:
- Seek out and support Black-owned business.
- Check your voter registration status at Headcount.org and make a pledge to vote this fall,
- Embrace the difficult conversation and listen to those who are hurting.
We see you and are with you.
Emma and Claire, the Salmon Sisters
