Black Lives Matter

Hello fellow Earthlings,

In light of recent events, countless creators have now committed to donating their revenue to Black Lives Matter groups, anti-racism organizations, and local bail funds.

The deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, David McAtee, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd are just a few of the Black people killed because of white supremacy and the pervasive anti-Blackness that reinforce the extraordinary injustice and racism in our police and criminal legal systems since their founding centuries ago. We believe that, through our collective action, we can create a world where each and every living being has the freedom to thrive. We stand in solidarity with Black artists and the Black community as we grieve the murders of numerous innocent individuals. The diverse backgrounds within our creative community are our highest source of strength, and we are committed to stand up against racism and actively work to shift the inequality that is manifested in our creative representation and beyond. The use of our collective knowledge sheds any doubts that we are capable of imagining and achieving better. Everyone deserves to feel safe — outdoors, indoors, in their cars, in their homes, in their jobs — wherever they are.

For the remaining year, we are donating 100% of our Bandcamp proceeds to the Portland, OR chapter of Black Lives Matter, BlackPDX.
