Social Justice

Our Acknowledgement: 

We’re learning how to become an anti-racist company.

 

We are teachable. This past year we’ve spent time connecting with employees, forming interdepartmental groups, drafting training materials, reading books, developing study groups, and overhauling processes. Our goal is to create a culture in which all MOM’s employees are treated, promoted, and developed fairly.

 

Indifference makes no difference.  We’ve formed new partnerships with nonprofits that are impactful in the social justice movement.  We’re taking action through advocacy- supporting bills that fight for sentencing reform, private prison reform, raising the minimum wage and donating to pro social justice political candidates.  We aim to create, facilitate, and encourage change that has a tangible effect on the community around us.

 

We have the courage to grow. We have found our footing in our Social Justice Journey, but there is much work to do. We are focused on progress, not perfection. This is just the beginning.
