We cannot stand silent. We choose to stand in solidarity with the Black community against injustice, inequality, and racism.
Remote Year exists to create a more peaceful and productive world by fostering genuine human connections across diverse cultures and people. This world we desire will never exist if we don't make a concerted effort to address the glaring issues persistently facing the Black community.
Having had many Black travelers on our programs, we’ve seen and heard countless examples of racism all around the world - this problem is of a global nature. We have continued to try to improve our own team and customer experience based on these examples and stories from our community. Here are two posts we wrote about our own journey with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI):
Creating a more peaceful world is harder than we thought
To create a world we are proud of, we had to start with ourselves
We encourage everyone around the world to reflect on ways to listen, learn, and educate ourselves...and contribute to dialogue and actions that create real change and help us get closer to that peaceful and productive world we all want.
