We kneel in solidarity for racial and social justice.
We kneel with #BlackLivesMatter.
Mercado Global was built on the principles of equality and social justice, not just for some or a few, but for all of us.
We were founded on the belief that a single thread is stronger when woven with many others and we recognize that in this moment, we must be vocal in unity with the oppressed.
Silence - is - violence.
We are listening, researching, and learning. Later this week, our team will be sharing the articles, podcasts, books, accounts to follow, and organizations to support, that are helping guide us through this time and will be adding them to our website. Your recommendations are welcomed and appreciated.
Our hearts mourn for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arberty, and too many others, whose lives have senselessly ended. Enough is enough.
We kneel in solidarity.
