we at ace&jig stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter
and all those taking action against systemic oppression, anti-blackness,
white supremacy, and police brutality.  

we are angered and saddened by the extreme racial inequities that have marked our history as a country.

we have a lot of work to do. 

we don’t have all the answers, but we are educating ourselves.
as a team, we are looking critically at what we can do better.
we are listening intently to Black voices, leaders, and activists. we are reading, watching,
learning and unlearning, doing research and thinking about our responsibility as a company and as humans in this movement. 

we are also taking action.
find the action items we are participating in and encouraging at the bottom of this page.

as we move forward, we are holding ourselves accountable and committed to:
          • prioritizing diversity in our hiring practices and increasing our internal work around anti-racism, diversity, equity & inclusion.
          • continuing in our dedication to representation in our brand imagery
          • increasing our charitable donations to Black organizations
          • continuing the process of getting our manufacturing in India Fair Trade certified 
          • scrutinizing our vendors and suppliers to see where we can shift our support to Black and BIPOC businesses
          • dedicating our time to calling, protesting, petitioning
          • elevating and voting for leaders that will demand the change we need 

we won't stop being angry. we won't stop learning. we won't stop taking action.
we know there are no easy fixes, and we’re in this for the long haul.
thank you for taking action with us.
 

we welcome suggestions and are open to conversations.
