5 Things Travelers Can Do Now to Combat Racism

by Tiana Attride in HERE

Five first steps travelers can take to be an anti-racist ally wherever they go.

As the Black Lives Matter movement gains traction worldwide, industries across the board are gearing up to diversify at last—and the travel and hospitality industries, like most, have plenty of work to do.

CREATED 150 YEARS AGO, the Justice Department’s First Mission Was to Protect Black Rights

CREATED 150 YEARS AGO, the Justice Department’s First Mission Was to Protect Black Rights

So in November 2016, we launched a new kind of financial company — one built by women+ for women+, because the finance industry wasn’t. CLICK TO CONTINUE
