“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – Martin Luther King Jr.
As a small business, we aim to use our platform to create awareness on pressing matters that are happening in the world right now. Everyone no matter what race, gender or religion should be respected and treated equally. We are devastated that racism is still a present enemy in today’s society. This needs to change for the future generation, we need to do better and try harder together.
We would like to share our resources in ways you and many others can help.
