TO OUR COMMUNITY,
The issues of systemic racism in this country need to be addressed. The killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others is the product of a long history of racism and police brutality that is particular to the Black experience. Seychelles stands with Black Lives Matter, and as a company there is more that we can do. As part of the fashion industry, we pledge to be more inclusive and urge our peers to do the same. We have made a donation to the NAACP, and are taking steps internally to make improvements within our organization to address what’s happening head on.
We all deserve space to be ourselves in this world. This is something we believe to our core. We have a responsibility to give each other that space, and being part of the movement of change starts with each of us.
We have taken time to listen, learn and reflect, and as a team feel that it's important to address this with you. Below are a few links for getting involved.
