As you know, inclusion is a huge deal for us at August Rose Press. We believe that the voices of traditionally marginalized people need to be heard and given a space to share their experiences and how it shapes their lives.
However, as you’ve seen in the media lately, hate speech is becoming more and more prevalent these days. At August Rose Press, we stand with other organizations and individuals that believe that this is not okay.
Along with thousands of other organizations and individuals that believe that #WeAreBetterThanThis, we also make the following pledge:
WE CALL UPON OUR POLITICIANS, LEADERS AND THE MEDIA TO STOP THE SPREAD OF HATE AND DIVISION. AND WE PLEDGE TO STAND WITH ANY COMMUNITY THAT IS TARGETED BY HATEFUL RHETORIC AND VIOLENCE.
The Team at August Rose Press
