What a hard two weeks. The murder of George Floyd was heartbreaking, and the courage displayed by protestors around the country has been inspiring. My friend Josh Laurito said it well in his newsletter:
Black Lives Matter, and I believe that anyone in America with a platform or an audience of any kind who recognizes that should affirm the same, no matter how apolitical their topic or audience is.
I agree.
There are a number of actions that I’ve personally taken this week, but supporting my friend and cofounder Drew Banin was probably the biggest:
Immediately after Drew’s tweet, Connor McArthur and I followed suit, each donating $1,900 and matching another $1,900. We each have some room left on our matches; please respond on the Twitter thread with a receipt and you’ll get a “like” back once one of us has matched.
I’m often a voice who has strong opinions, who has answers. I don’t have answers here. My statement is one of solidarity and support: to the Black Community, to the protestors, to allies who align themselves publicly with the cause. I’m here, I’m listening, I’m with you.
#BlackLivesMatter
Lots of love.
