Adafruit offers paid time off for charity for our team members, we’re very motivated to help improve, help and make our local communities better with one of the most important resources we all have, our time. Over the holidays so much as happened, and as we collectively start what will be a very historic 2017 in so many ways, many of our team members have expressed themselves about their goals, hopes, desires and ways to help others. Throughout the year we’ll be posting these up and sharing stories on our weekly videos too. Here’s one from Stefan.
Over the past few months, I’ve become more involved with activism and the fight for social justice. Living in New York City, one of the most diverse places in the world, I feel obligated to work for the equal rights and safety of all the beautifully different people who live here and all across the country and the world. As a person who has come from considerable privilege, wearing a safety pin is a small gesture to show that I’m an ally and that I will use that privilege to fight for the people that don’t have a voice. Having worked at Adafruit for more than 4 years now, I knew Ladyada, Phil and many of the Adafruit team would be excited to join me celebrating safe places for all of us. Best, Stefan.
The team came up with this nice Adafruit logo with safety pin. So of course, we started looking around – other examples of companies showing support for coming together using iconography/logos…
Stay safe, be excellent to one another.
