Over the past couple of weeks, myself and the team here at Square 1 Group have watched recent events unfold with shock. As we process the death of George Floyd and countless other Black victims, we wanted to take a moment to express our steadfast belief in solidarity and our support for our community. During trying times, it’s important that we remain focused on the issues that affect us all.
Simply put: we stand against police brutality, systematic injustice, and racism. Like so many progressive companies, we want to play our role in making the country and our community better.
1) In our office and in our homes, we will continue to support the Black Lives Matter movement, asking the tough questions that matter and spark important dialogue.
2) As a team, we will go the extra mile to cultivate a more diverse roster of clients. We’ll work with our existing brands to really spread the values we hold dear as a company.
We see what’s happening. We are continuously growing to help ourselves know both when it’s time to step back, listen, and educate ourselves, and when it’s time to speak up. We will work harder to amplify the Black voices of our clients and community, using our platforms as a foundation.
We believe that when we work together, we can create positive systematic change. Businesses like ours are especially responsible for contributing to the change we want to see.
If you have any questions, or need help spreading the message and love of equality, we’re here for you.
