Black Lives Matter
Team Oink always has, and always will, proudly and constantly strive to be an ally & friend to POC, LGBTQIA+, & beyond, regardless of what letters, labels, or pronouns you use to self-identify. We understand that allyship is ongoing work -- like becoming a better knitter or crocheter, it is something that takes time, and must be practiced. True allyship is a life-long learning process that is never complete.
In the past, our business has made donations to Planned Parenthood, the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and other organizations working to protect the rights of the oppressed.
For the month of June 2020, we pledge to donate 10% of wholesale orders & 25% of all other orders to organizations fighting police violence, systemic racism, and the oppression of Black people.
If our statement of solidarity with the Black community is something that makes you uncomfortable, we ask that you look within yourself and examine the source of your discomfort. There are myriad resources available to those willing to learn how to be anti-racist.
