COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE
 

Lacelit is committed to...

 

OPPOSING PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION in all its forms by-

  • demonstrating love for our global community through prioritization of intentional representation and accessibility,
     

  • standing with all communities who have been systematically disregarded, oppressed, marginalized, persecuted, displaced, enslaved, exploited, physically harmed or killed, and silenced,
     

  • standing against the widespread oppression of women, POC communities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ communities, immigrants, indigenous communities, and seniors,
     

  • standing with Black and Latinx communities against police brutality in all forms, and a biased criminal justice system that disproportionately targets Black and Brown Americans,

    and,

     

  • continuing to listen and learn directly from voices who represent each community, address my privilege as a White-passing hapa and strive toward more active allyship.

     

CARING FOR THE PLANET by-

  • reducing waste, and reusing and repurposing materials,
     

  • using 100% recycled kraft envelopes, 100% recycled chipboard backing for art prints, and plant-based cello sleeves,
     

  • using paper stock from a 100% green, hydro-powered paper mill, which has avoided the release of over 700,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere since 1922 (equivalent to over 4,878,049 pounds of coal), while producing surplus green energy for the local utility and supplying power to their community,

    and,

     

  • continuing to research and implement more ways to reduce Lacelit's footprint on our beautiful planet.

ONGOING WORK

 

Lacelit recognizes that creating sustainable, lasting systemic change to build an inclusive, diverse, and accessible world for ALL requires ongoing and active diligence. I understand that this is a continual journey and, though I know I will make missteps along the way as I continue to learn, I am committed to being a perpetual student in pursuit of a more just future and take full responsibility for educating myself without depending on the emotional labor of others. If you have feedback or questions, please feel free to reach out.
