The following statement was originally posted to the Glossier Instagram account on May 30th:
We stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy, and the historic oppression of the Black community. Black lives matter.
We will be donating $500K across organizations focused on combating racial injustice: Black Lives Matter, The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, The Equal Justice Initiative, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, and We The Protesters.
In an effort to make an impact within our own industry, we will be allocating an additional $500K in the form of grants to Black-owned beauty businesses—more details to come on this initiative in June.
We’re inspired by so many people in our community who are using their voices and making change. We see you and are with you. For those looking for ways to take action, you can find resources for engagement and education in our Instagram Stories.
