Where We Stand

Hi friends,

We would like to take a moment to make it clear where we stand when it comes to our community. We believe that fiber friends are the best friends and we want all of you to feel welcome here. We believe that Black Lives Matter. We are working to learn how we can be better allies to the Black community and support the movement towards justice and equity. We know that many of you are on the same journey, so we thought we would share some of the resources we’ve been turning to.

This is a truncated list of the MANY resources available. We hope that it sparks your curiosity and helps you on your own journey toward anti-racism. We’re always learning and are sure to make mistakes along the way. The important thing is to keep going!

Where do I start?

Work through Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad.

Can we say with certainty that this is the best place to start? No. But it’s where we started, and starting anywhere is better than not starting at all!

What can I do?
