community engagement.

We are committed to supporting our community.

From our local neighborhood, to the cultural and social communities of our staff and customers, we mobilize our time, energy, funds, and platform in pursuit of a more equitable city. We’re committed to social justice in all its forms, and are so proud to work with partner organizations who are building a Boston that works for everyone. We believe that effective change requires communal work, and we empower our team members to serve and support partner organizations alongside company-wide and product-based initiatives.
