We all have a lot to learn about why things are the way they are. And even more to unlearn if we’re really going to make things better. It’s not enough to be not racist. We need to become proactively anti-racist.

HMC is committed to making a positive impact on the communities we serve, and we are outraged by the continued violence perpetrated upon black citizens. We care deeply about designing a world without systemic racism. And we are taking action.

As we continue to navigate the current pandemic and develop strategies and solutions for a safer and healthier post-COVID-19 world, we recognize that we also have a responsibility to stand up and support those hurting right now as a result of social injustices. As designers, we have the power to affect change in our communities. To create inclusive and equitable spaces. And to promote diversity in our industry. Please stand with us. We cannot design for the human experience if we cannot be human.
