After our participation in the music industry #TheShowMustBePaused initiative on June 2, we are committing ourselves to serious change going forward.
Outside of ongoing listening, protesting, educating ourselves, and sharing resources, we will be:
– Donating all $$ (both label and artist shares) from Bandcamp Days on June 5th and June 19th to various Black and anti-racist organizations.
– Making monthly donations to similar organizations at home in order to help build our communities.
– Pulling all ads with Facebook & Instagram, instead spending these budgets on smaller, progressive outlets.
– Improving diversity and focusing on inclusivity within our roster, with events we are involved in, and on our team.
We welcome any other suggestions on how we can use our platforms and resources to help so please stay in touch.
