Actions speak louder than words. That saying has a whole new meaning as many people post messages of solidarity in reaction to the events happening around the world.

While it’s critical to raise awareness and vocalize our support, we have to do more than simply pledge to make a difference. We have to take action and work together to build a more inclusive and equitable future.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility team has curated a series of virtual volunteer events to support organizations who are on the front lines of racial and social justice. Whether it’s helping people register to vote or preserving a piece of Black history, there is an opportunity for everyone to drive effective and sustained change.

After you volunteer, please use the cards below to share why you took action on your social media channels. Additionally, we added designs that reflect the resources available in our Race & Social Justice Action Toolkit, so you can share how you are expanding your knowledge and initiating important conversations.

We know good drives good, so this is an opportunity to remind people that they can make a real difference that goes beyond sharing good intentions.

Act today to change tomorrow!
