Understanding the value of protesting balanced with the ability to support change through political action, has motivated us to offer thoughtfully curated resources to our community. We are committed to voting in the upcoming elections and doing our part to share the steps we took to follow through. And we are continuously seeking ways to be socially responsible as individuals and as an organization. Together we can make a difference.
