STIIIZY Takes to the Streets to Support Our Communities
The summer of 2020 was marked by a surging movement of activism calling for social change. As STIIIZY stands with our communities of color, we believe all people are created equal, deserving to be treated with dignity and respect. In addition, we stand shoulder to shoulder to support their calls for action to address racial inequality and injustice, whether in accountability calls within our communities, with local and regional leadership, and throughout our larger industry as a whole. In the Bay Area, STIIIZY Brand Ambassadors marched with activists to address violence targeted at the Asian community. In Los Angeles, where many street vendors also experienced physical attacks and robbery, our team drove across the region to surprise affected vendors with gifts of $1,000 cash to lift their spirits, help with their protection, and recoup some of their losses. Throughout the summer, we remained active in our support of communities of color, through advocacy engagement on our social media platforms as well as a significant donation to the L.A. chapter of Black Lives Matters and other organizations working towards racial equality and justice.
