As we have conversations within our company—just like the ones you’re having in your homes and with your friends and families—we want to explicitly say:

Grailed stands with the black community.

We've made contributions to the following five organizations that stand up and fight racial injustice. We hope you'll consider learning more and donating to these organizations:

  1. Black Lives Matter - A global network with the goal of bringing justice, healing, and freedom to Black people around the world.

  2. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - A non-profit created to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

  3. NAACP Legal Defense Fund - Legal firm fighting for racial justice.

  4. Reclaim the Block - A Minneapolis-based organization that works with community and city council members to direct money towards initiatives that promote community health and safety.

  5. Committee to Protect Journalists - A non-profit that promotes press freedom and defends the rights of journalists.

While giving is a great place to start, we at Grailed recognize that donating is just the first step.

Education is a crucial part of the process.

We've found that Patia Borja's (better known as @patiasfantasyworld)'s Master List of Resources on How to Dismantle Racism has been one of the most comprehensive libraries of information, self-educational tools and conversation starters. Head to the Google Sheet here (which was so popular, that it has since been turned into a full-on website with daily updates).

For a comprehensive collection of anti-racism resources for white people, which includes articles, videos, podcasts and organizations to support, head here.
