I intentionally backed off of social media last week, taking the time instead to educate myself about the systemic racism within our police system (the @nytimes daily has a great podcast on this from 6/2), reading the news, and having hard conversations with people I love. All of this is important, but I also want to do more. So, as a reminder of the 8 minutes and 46 seconds of that Chauvin's knee was on Floyd's neck, we will donate 8.46% of all sales to @campaignzero for the next 8 weeks.
Campaign Zero is a comprehensive platform of research-based policy solutions to end police brutality in America. I highly recommend taking some time to read reports they've published, including their review of the Police Union Contract and the Police Use of Force Policy. I am incredibly impressed by the depth of data used to understand problems, build solutions, and track action & accountability. I couldn't be prouder to support this cause.
In addition, we are eager to use our puzzle platform to support artists of all races. If you have any recommendations for diverse artists you love, please DM us so that we can reach out ahead of our next production this fall.
