On June 2nd, PaperCut took a stance on Blackout Tuesday.
Shari Rose, PaperCut – This simple act was a powerful step for us in solidarity with those suffering under systemic racism. It was also a statement of our commitment to begin creating organizational change from within PaperCut.
We meant it when we said we are committed to doing the hard work — Blackout Tuesday was only the beginning for us as an organization.
The ripple effect
Eight Portland PaperCutters gathered together as a Diversity Action working group – now called DEIBs – Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging.
