Dear Breastie Community,
We share your heartbreak and outrage over the recent attacks in Atlanta that claimed the lives of eight people, including six Asian women.
We also condemn the recent horrific killings in Boulder, Colorado.
In January, we witnessed an egregious violation of our democracy as a violent mob descended on our sacred institutions in Washington, DC.
Just months into the pandemic, a cry for racial justice erupted around the world following the brutal killings of Black Americans: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others.
We stand in solidarity with marginalized communities. We stand with our Asian Breasties, Black Breasties, and all Breasties of Color. All acts of racism and violence are an affront to the principles on which The Breasties was founded. We cannot stay silent when humans, especially those within our community, are suffering.
The Breasties is committed to fostering a community that is rooted in respect, inclusion, equity, and accountability. While we acknowledge there is disparity within our society, we are committed to creating a safe space that finds shared meaning through thoughtful ideas and respectful discourse.
Our collective efforts have the potential to shift the current climate of division, elevate the conversation, and lay the foundation for future generations to follow. We do this by listening to understand, holding one another accountable, and using our voices to advocate for others.
At The Breasties, we wholeheartedly believe what makes us strong is the community’s diversity in experience and backgrounds. Our continued goal is to seek opportunities to celebrate our differences and align ourselves with what is just, what is honest and what is fair.
