Work Together II: Assata's Daughters

 
August was the second month of our Work Together initiative where 1% of our monthly sales are pledged to organizations that actively fight racism. In July we shared the pledge between the NAACP Legal Defense FundAssata's Daughters, and The Federation of Black Canadians.  $570 CAD — 1% of our July sales were pledged evenly between the three institutions.

1% might seem like not much, we're a small studio and extra money is hard to come by. Our hope is to create a sustainable practice that is both intentional and continual—to be adopted by any individual or organization regardless of how much or how little is made monthly. The conversation and fight for justice should include everyone and we are committed to aid in any way we can. 

This is 1% off the top of our sales, so if you buy an object for $200 we'll donate $2 from that sale before any deductions are subtracted. We'll publish the amounts donated at the end of each month.

For the Month of August, we've donated $250 CAD, choosing to focus on  Assata's Daughters  —an organization based in Chicago, providing youth with educational services, leadership development as well as mentorship programs.

If you're involved with an anti-racism organization please get in contact with us to see if we can help! Together, let's do this.
