We Stand Against Racial Inequality
As we all witness what’s going on around the country, we can agree that it’s been a very difficult time. We are heartbroken and outraged by the death of George Floyd who, along with Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others, should still be with us. We say their names to remember that there’s much work to be done for racial equality in America.
We want the African American community to know that we stand with you. Because black lives matter.
One of our core values at Big Lots is that we treat all like friends, and we bring an attitude of respect and honesty to every interaction. Together, we all stand against the racism and discrimination that so disproportionately impacts the black community.
But meaningful change only happens when there is relentless focus on the mission. So, we’re investing $100,000 with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund to help expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice.
We recognize the role each of us plays in advancing racial equality and we believe in supporting our friends and colleagues that might be struggling.
When one hurts, we can all help. We stand together.
