A STATEMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY:
At PRISM, we believe that a company, no matter how big or small, has an obligation to stand up for what’s right.
We stand strongly in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement and send love to all those who have been afflicted. We grieve and are outraged at the lost lives of George Floyd, Armaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, along with countless others Black lives that have been lost at the hands of police brutality and systemic racism in this country.
We also stand with BLM to demand justice. Our identities as first-generation immigrants and women of color have meant that we are activists and advocates first, and co-founders and business-owners second. When we started our brand, we made sure that every decision we made was underscored by our commitment to social responsibility.
“Carry on, with purpose” means that as we continue to move forward, we commit to being better allies everyday. We build coalitions and are working towards building partnerships with NGOs to elevate women of color. We are actively participating in protests and support our team members who choose to do so as well. We’re firm believers in the idea that equality and inclusion is not just about speaking up when it’s convenient, but advocating for others all the time, and we hope that you will join us in these efforts too.
Black lives matter.
There is no equality without racial justice, equity, and the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. We will not rest until justice is served.
