One of the core principles at Kuvio has always been a steadfast commitment to diversity and inclusion, to helping those who are often overlooked. We stand in solidarity against the systematic racism and injustice that has been allowed to go unchecked in our country for so long.
The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others that don’t make the headlines are unacceptable. The historic and continuous oppression of black communities across America cannot be allowed to stand. To be silent in a time of such blatant injustice is to be complicit in the conservation of a system that fails so many people on a daily basis.
Our team recognizes that we may have not done enough to combat racial injustice in the past. We need to learn and do better.
We have compiled a list of resources and steps you can take to help work towards a more inclusive future for everyone.
