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.
Our August nonprofit partner.
When we say Black Lives Matter, we intend to address the systems that threaten Black people and communities. One of these is undeniably the criminal justice system; in Mass, jails are filled with people awaiting trial simply because they cannot afford bail, and who are therefore at risk of longer incarceration times, lost jobs, lost housing, and devastated families.
To address this inequity, we’re proud to partner this August with the Massachusetts Bail Fund (MBF)—an organization that pays up to $2000 bail so that low-income people can stay free while they work towards resolving their case, allowing individuals, families, and communities to stay productive, together, and stable. We’re impressed by this organization’s ability to simultaneously free individuals who are wrongly imprisoned and to work towards large scale structural change.
