DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
Complicated topic. And we don't have all the answers. Not yet at least. Here's what we DO know;
We support all people, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or religion. How you identify, where you're from and who you worship (or not) doesn't matter to us. But it's important to for everyone to have clear expectations and that only happens when you receive transparency from us. In this case, we stand with communities whose members have been historically marginalized. We're not sure we've ever seen racism or bigotry within our ranks. We hope we never do.
We seem to be on a slow, painful cultural lurch towards awareness and acceptance. This is a part of our collective journey (not just you, but us as well.) It's not always comfortable. But it's necessary for us to form a more perfect union, and the pursuit of that goal speaks to the better part of who we believe ourselves as a nation to be.
We understand however that identity may matter to some. To THOSE people we have a slightly different policy, but one that's easily communicated; the Red Rider isn't the race for you.
We don't have all the answers. But we're asking questions, listening and learning. We'll get there.
In the meantime, ALL are welcome here.
Unless, you know, you're a poop.
