A company-wide email from our partners:

Team,

Over the past few years, we have seen a substantial increase in antisemitic actions and attitudes, from attacks on synagogues to hateful statements and demonstrations at universities, in the workplace, and our everyday lives. Recently, antisemitism has been back in the headlines, and it is deeply troubling. We stand by our Jewish colleagues, clients, partners, and loved ones, and condemn the hate and intolerance that has been directed at the Jewish community.

Like many of the other societal issues we are facing, antisemitism is rooted in centuries of hate and persecution. While many are speaking out against such dangerous rhetoric, others are feeling more encouraged to share it publicly, endangering Jewish people going about their everyday lives. We cannot stand for it and we have no tolerance for hate of any kind.

We are relieved to see Adidas finally do the right thing, although entirely too late. Kanye West has more followers than there are Jewish people in the entire world. His words have serious meaning to many, including kids who are still forming their own thoughts. They need to understand how dangerous uninformed, bigoted speech is.

We encourage you to spend time reading this report from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) that outlines the rise in antisemitic incidents in the US, which reached a high in 2021. We need to stay vigilant and part of that is staying informed.

We will continue to speak out against hate in all forms.

Jeff, Casey, Mark, Alan, and Emilio
