We see you Brooklyn. We see you Minneapolis. We see you Louisville. We see you LA. We see you DC. We see you Seattle. We grieve you, George Floyd. Tony McDade. Breonna Taylor. Nina Pop. Ahmaud Arbery. Eric Garner. Botham Jean. Atatiana Jefferson. Kalief Browder. Sean Bell. Emmett Till. We’re in pain, we’re angry, and we’re scared. And we know that’s a microcosm of what black people feel every single day in the face of systemic oppression, injustice, and racism.
We owe so much more and have a lot of learning and listening to do, and we’re committed. Right now, we can only say we stand with you and we see you. What you do, you don’t do in the dark. Be safe. Take care of each other. Witness and check your own privilege. Share your resources.
We sell beer in over 30 states and 30+ countries. Wherever you live, this has to matter to you. Remaining silent is choosing to remain complicit. Start with these resources:
And give what you’re able to: time, money, energy, attention, volume, passion. Let’s all put in the work. Black Lives Matter.
