We are listening and learning.

June 18, 2020

As a company focussed on creating community and connection among new moms, we realize that we need to become better allies for BIPOC.

We have been thinking very deeply about the Black Lives Matter movement and how we can do better.  It starts with tough conversations, and potentially imperfect actions.  But we are committed to change.

To start, we would like to amplify the voices of people who are already doing incredible things in the world.  And to share some of the tools we are using to make changes within our own families and communities.

We are also committed to using our platform to bring awareness to BIPOC parenting experts, businesses and activities.  If you own or recommend a business that focuses on new families, and is BIPOC owned, please reply to this email and tell us about it.

 

We will keep listening.  We will keep learning.  Thank you for going on this journey with us.
