#BlackLivesMatter

Here at Jewelclues, we support and stand in solidarity with the African Americans - Black community. We’ve been listening, learning, and reflecting on how we, as a small business, can contribute to the vivid colors of diversity and combat racism. We’re committed to doing better – to being better – and it starts right now.

Here are our promises to our community:

We stand & will always stand against racism in all forms.

We will expand our diversity and anti-discrimination training, at our workplace. We commit ourselves to foster inviting environment that’s welcoming to and respectful of all individuals, customers, and employees. Also, we will explore ways to help rebuild and grow business with Black communities, especially in New Jersey & New York.

Real, meaningful change comes through action. We are encouraging our employees, vendors and customers to donate for the cause on how we can fight for racial justice – today and every day.

We suggest the following organizations – The United Negro College Fund, The Antiracist Research and Policy Center (ARPC) and The Equal Justice Initiative. You can learn more about these incredible organizations below.

The United Negro College Fund

UNCF (the United Negro College Fund) invests in better futures for students, communities, and the nation by working with its 37 member historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to provide students with the college education they need and that the 21st-century economy demands. To support its member HBCUs and the more than 60,000 students it supports, UNCF: provides member HBCUs with financial and other support so they can keep their academic programs strong and their tuition affordable; awards more than 10,000 scholarships under 400 programs each year to help students at member HBCUs and many other colleges and universities across the United States earn their degrees and launch their careers; and advocates in Washington, DC, and around the country for the importance of HBCUs, college education, and college readiness.

The Antiracist Research and Policy Center

The mission of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center (ARPC) is to convene and team up varied specialists to figure out novel and practical ways to understand, explain, and solve seemingly intractable problems of racial inequity and injustice. ARPC’s research and policy work is deliberately antiracist. The organization considers racist policies and ideas, and not certain racial groups, to be the racial problem, and strives to build an antiracist society of racial equity and justice. Learn More

Equal Justice Initiative

The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. EJI provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. EJI challenges the death penalty and excessive punishment and provides re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people. Learn More

 We can do better. We can be better. We will be better.

This is just the first step. Many more must follow.

Thank you for being a part of our community.
