Black Lives Matter: We Stand Together

by Riley Studio |

To our #KindHuman Community, 

At Riley Studio, equality has and always will be a core value of ours. It is ingrained in our company and is paramount to our ‘We Are Human Kind’ ethos. But in moments like this, we want to reiterate that we stand alongside the global black community and we are committed indefinitely to helping eradicate long standing racism. 

Whilst awareness is important, it is not enough and we know that only by taking action can we begin to ensure systemic change. We are committed to using our platform to share resources to help our community and ourselves and we have compiled a list of resources below to initially share with you to help take action. 

As a business, we know that we can do better. We have donated to the NAACP and the Black Lives Matter Movements but we are aware this is not enough. We will be taking time as a team to look inwardly at how Riley Studio can take more action and fight louder for the change that is needed. 


Obama said yesterday,  “Ultimately it’s going to be a new generation of activists to shape strategies that best fit the times.” Let us all be the changes of tomorrow. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
