Black Lives Matter

Black lives, stories, and voices matter – today and every day.

As people, we pledge to take this watershed moment to listen, learn and take effective action, starting from within.

As a platform connecting Canadians young and old, from coast to coast to coast, we commit to amplify BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) voices and to help educate through books, events, resources and learning materials.

As a company, notwithstanding this being a challenging time, we commit to donating $100,000 from the profits of our antiracist reading list to support Black Lives Matter.

We also commit to making this a sustained effort.
