Big Vision Design stands in solidarity with communities that have been historically marginalized, disenfranchised, and terrorized through discrimination and hatred. We recognize our responsibility to uphold social justice, embody compassion, and bring transformative awareness to the ignorance and delusion that allow discrimination and hatred to flourish. The continuing inequity and violence we see in this country and elsewhere is evidence that we haven’t done enough and there is more we must do.
We believe that Black Lives Matter and we mourn the loss of Daunte Wright, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Dominique Clayton, Tamir Rice and countless other Black people throughout history to white violence. We condemn the anti-Asian violence that surged in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-immigrant rhetoric driven by bigotry and xenophobic ideologies, the rollback of LGBTQ+ nondiscrimination protections, and the increase in violence against transgender and gender non-conforming people in this country.
We pledge our commitment to ongoing diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, advocacy, allyship and activism initiatives that evolve as circumstances change and as new needs arise. We are committed to a mindful way of living; this includes waking up to injustice and recognizing our personal and shared responsibility for eliminating it. This also means taking committed action that supports social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. We hope you will stand in mindful and compassionate solidarity with us.
Thank you to the Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness for your inspiration and leadership.
