These are difficult times, on many levels. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many more, are unequivocal tragedies that have mobilized millions to take action and confront the racism entrenched in American life.
The need for equality and the affirmation of human rights are not political issues. We want everyone, at Bison Trails and in our communities, to feel safe, secure, and healthy. Bison Trails stands in solidarity with communities impacted by systemic and institutionalized racism. Black Lives Matter.
Empathy is one of our core values and it informs how we work together as a team, how we service our customers, and how we approach the products we build. Empathy extends beyond our company to how we interface with the world. It’s a value to uphold in all areas of life and is deeply connected to the future world we envision.
A future in which people around the world retain their sovereignty, and are able to participate on equal footing in global financial institutions, can only truly exist if the right to justice for all people is upheld equally.
This is a traumatic and emotional time. You may be feeling a range of anger, fear, and heartbreak. As we are all understandably navigating complex responses to what is happening and how it impacts our families, our friends, and our communities, I want to acknowledge that we can and we need to do more.
In addition to our individual contributions and support efforts, we are now matching employee donations (up to $250 per herd member) to organizations working to address injustice and build a more equitable future:
I don’t have all the answers here but I’m listening:
These are questions without easy answers but I’m committed to doing this work. Please reflect on how to practice greater empathy during the days ahead and do the work individually to address injustice however you can. This “Guide to Solidarity” doc maintained by the Justworks team, contains further resources and reading materials.
We’re here for you. Please reach out: to me individually, to Melissa, or your manager. My messages are always open.
