We have always strived to create an inclusive family at Kreation, to be an ally to the black community, and to never tolerate any acts of bigotry. When you walk in our doors, you are greeted with a sign that says "WELCOME ALL beliefs, colors, countries, sexual identities. WE DO NOT SERVE racists, sexists, homophobes, assholes", and we forever stand by this message.
Kreation was founded on the ideals of justice, love and peace. Despite current events and selective news coverage, we will not allow the narrative to be changed. The message is still loud and clear. #BlackLivesMatter #EndPoliceBrutality #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd. We stand in solidarity in the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy and the history of oppression in the black community.
While we remain focused on the cause, we are extremely saddened and our hearts are broken for small businesses and people, especially immigrants, that are being hurt during this journey. It''s unfortunate that at times like this, innocent people are getting hurt. Our hearts go out to you, and we will come together as a community and rebuild, united, with love and understanding.
What we say to those who call to end racism:
Start by healing it in your own family.
What we say to those who speak to bias and bigotry:
Start by having the first conversation at your dinner table.
For those who say there is too much HATE:
Devote yourself to love and understanding. LOVE YOURSELF so that you can love others unconditionally: without barriers, without judgment.
THE KREATION FOUNDATION IS COMMITTED TO SHOWING SUPPORT IN EVERY WAY WE CAN:
