As members of the global skateboarding community, we have come together to make a collective commitment to actively resist and challenge systemic racism in our own scenes, organizations, the skateboard industry, and wider society.
The Commitment to Anti-Racism in Skateboarding is an idea led by the Goodpush Alliance, together with members from over a dozen social skateboarding organizations worldwide. Harold Hunter Foundation is very proud to be a supporter of this initiative.
Topline goals of the Commitment to Anti-Racism in Skateboarding are to:
+ Help keep the Black Lives Matter and Anti-Asian Hate momentum going and keep anti-racism action on the agenda.
+ Encourage skate companies, media, social skate projects, pros, national skate federations, and individual skaters to agree to challenge the systemic racism that exists in the skate community and wider society.
Today, on the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, we encourage you to CLICK HERE to read and sign the Commitment to Anti-Racism in Skateboarding.
Signing this Commitment does not mean the work is done; it is just the beginning of the serious work we must do to abide by the principles and actions within it. A sincere thank you for your support!
