We Stand with the
Black Community Against
Standing up is who we are, what we represent and how we support our community.
Our priority is to ensure that our African American employees,
consumers and community feel supported in our collective condemnation of anti-black racism.
We stand in solidarity against racial injustice. We are committed to doing the right thing,
in the best way that we can.
What’s most important right now is doing our part to impact positive change.
