Solidarity and Support
Like many of you, I’ve watched the events surrounding the brutal murder of George Floyd by police with a heavy heart. This senseless killing has highlighted the systemic injustices and unequal treatment of people of color and especially the Black community. To everyone who has been affected by the pain of racism, we stand with you in solidarity for equality and justice.
Since our founding, our mission at Touchstone Essentials has always been to bring goodness to the lives of others. To help people build and live a good life regardless of race, religion, education level, or background. Our business unites people in so many good ways.
We’re still figuring out the best way to foster more inclusivity. We are listening, reflecting, and using this time to learn more deeply about these issues. We’re starting conversations within our team about unconscious bias, and how we can individually and collectively make a positive difference.
We recognize that staying silent on this issue contributes to the unacceptable status quo of systemic racism. We have a role to play in being a voice for those whose voices have too often been unheard. So, in the coming weeks, months, and years ahead you’ll see us highlight social justice on all our platforms.
We pledge to do our part to create a more equitable and just society. We stand in solidarity and support with the Black community and are united in the fight against systemic racism. Black lives matter. Today and always.
I am incredibly grateful for our amazing community of VBOs, affiliates and customers. Now more than ever, people need goodness in their lives. Together we can take a stand and make great strides towards social justice.
We will start from a place of love and lead with an open heart.
We are the change,
Touchstone Essentials Founder & CEO
