At AMIRI, we stand against injustice and systemic racism and have made contributions to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, BLMLA, and Black Visions Collective. These contributions will now become a dedicated part of our budgets.
We understand this action and ongoing initiative is not enough. The fact remains that until justice is actualized through ongoing vigilance and commitment none of this will ever be enough.
Black lives not only matter but are directly responsible for the cultural, intellectual, and artistic renaissance that our industry continues to benefit from today.
We have initiated internal dialogue to utilize our infrastructure, expertise, and resources to support the black community including an open invitation for insight and outreach via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to listen, learn, take action, and join in supporting organizations that are leading the fight for real change.
