Anti-Racism Resources

A Note from our Managing Director

 

We are living in a time in the history of America that I am sure will be discussed and analyzed in coffee shops, classrooms, and courtrooms for decades to come. A global pandemic. An economic crisis. Unrest in cities due to homicide at the hands of law enforcement. All happening at the same time.

SNR Creative is a small, yet mighty band of marketers who not only “geek out” on making words and images come together to tell brand stories but we value and respect people despite our differences. The tapestry of our company has and does include Americans – black and white, Asian, Asian American, Mexican American, Indian, Christian – Protestant and Catholic, Hindu, Muslim seeking and agnostic, gay, straight and questioning.

Why is this important? Because I am convinced that we have been made better because we are all different. One of the things I am the most proud of is that Team SNR Creative – past and present – is made up of people who have a genuine curiosity to learn a different perspective; and the ability to respect viewpoints different than their own. I think that has been our superpower.

So why are you receiving this note today? You are receiving this today because you are in the SNR Creative community and you have a superpower too. It is your ability to use your voice, standing, and in some cases, privilege to amplify the voices of those who do not have the same access.

As a black woman in America, some of the conversations about racial oppression and injustices are par for the course. What I see that is different during these times is that people are waking up and paying attention. People who have historically either been oblivious or who have let their social standing, comfort and convenience be a reason to sit in silence regarding the deep racial issues disparities and inequalities that people of color have faced.

While race relations are not the only challenge we are facing, I do believe that race – because it’s one of the first things we all see as humans – is foundational. Because race informs so many aspects of our lives – language, culture, religion, viewpoint, etc. – we must find a loving way to see, understand and engage with each other before any other challenge. It’s that important.
