We, here at NINE10 Coastal Concierge, irrevocably and unequivocally denounce racism and inequality in any and all forms! We stand with communities of color and refuse to be silent. Silence is not an option. Silence is compliance. Unless and until white America is willing to collectively acknowledge its privilege, nothing is going to change. Please know that we hear you, we see you and we are standing with you. We stand with the Black community and will continue to strive and work together for justice and a better future filled with love, kindness and beautiful diversity.
We know that we still have a lot of listening, learning and reading to do to continue to become a better ally and to fully grasp what roles we can play to support the work that is needed to dismantle systemic racism and inequality. In solidarity, NINE10 has donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the National Urban League. Personally, our owner has donated to the local ILM Bail Fund and Black Lives Matter chapter. We will continue to be an advocate and ally in any way we can; we will continue to write letters to our government leaders and educate ourselves in all ways possible.
