Force for change: It's time to speak out

There are moments when it becomes necessary to speak out and come together as a force for change.

There are moments when it becomes necessary to speak out and come together as a force for change.

As an email provider, we have a unique responsibility to be a vehicle for diverse opinions, not a vehicle for oppression. We will continue to do our part by identifying and blocking senders that incite hatred or spur violence in violation of our Acceptable Use Policy. We will ensure our policies discern between the freedom of expression and the provocation of unnecessary harmful acts. We will not allow our platform to be utilized as a mechanism to spread violence and hate speech.

As an organization, we will continue to evaluate our employment policies to ensure we are promoting fairness, equality, and diversity. We strive to exemplify our core values of Human, Ownership, and Evolution in our everyday interactions through the way we connect, hold ourselves accountable, and transform with intention. As such, we are giving every employee a day off this week to provide the space and the time to digest, reflect, and take meaningful action toward any cause of their choice.

As individuals, the most important thing we can do is to spark conversation around prejudice, violence, oppression, and privilege with our friends, our family, and our colleagues. We must ask ourselves, how do we not only respond to this individual act but also prevent its recurrence? More than ever, we need to have an open dialogue around social responsibility and, ultimately, what it means to be a good human.

We will not stand by as a silent witness to oppression. We will stand in solidarity. Not just today, but every day.
