#BLACKLIVESMATTER resources

Thu Jun 11 2020
Terilyn Walker

At AspireIQ, inclusion and equity are foundational to our business. We are built on the idea that organizations and systems thrive when they encourage diversity, human connection, creativity, and community. We are outraged by the murders of #GeorgeFloyd, #AhmaudArbery, and #BreonnaTaylor and the system that perpetuates these atrocities. As a society, we have failed to uphold standards of equity and fairness and we must actively fight for these ideals.⁠⠀⁠⠀

We stand with the black community and the #BlackLivesMatter movement against racism, hate, and injustice. In an effort to amplify Black voices and support the Black Lives Matter movement, we’ve compiled a list of resources that will direct you to organizations to donate to, petitions to sign, and outlets to keep you informed.
