Recently we had the opportunity to met with Rachael, a Hip Stitch customer who reached out to ask us:
Does your business believe Black Lives Matter? I am Indigenous, Pueblo and Apache, and my traditional values of love and respect mean Black relatives should not live in fear of being shot to death by police. More than ever, I feel called to direct my dollars to those who do not want Black people, Indigenous people, undocumented people, and those with mental illnesses violently handled by any kind of law enforcement. Thank you.
Rachael and her husband both grew up on the Laguna Pueblo, and have been working for social justice for much of their lives. They are kind, honest, sincere, and inspiring. We like to share with you some links to articles on Black quilters, designers and sewists.
We, like many, feel helpless at times about how to stop injustice. Let’s all take some time to learn, to read, to celebrate the accomplishments of others, and to continue, as always, to listen.
