We welcome June with optimism and hope that we can all do better to acknowledge, amplify and support our black community. Everyone at the workroom strongly believes that Black Lives Matter. We know we can do more to be anti-racist and are committed to educating ourselves on how to be better allies. In addition to learning and signing petitions, we have donated $100 to each the following seven organizations or funds this week. We will also be setting up monthly contributions going forward to maintain our financial commitment for the long term. We encourage you to consider what you are able to contribute whether it is monetary, your voice or your energy. The work to be done here is overwhelming but essential. 

the workroom was built around the concept of community, and it is of the utmost importance that our physical and virtual space is inclusive and welcoming to all. This is just our first step in a journey we are committed to address, personally and as a small business with a community we are responsible to and care so much about.
