JOURNAL FOR CHANGE
This Journal was created in response to the Black Lives Matter Movement—in the fight against systemic racism, inequality, and injustice in our society. We stand in solidarity with our community to raise funds, increase awareness, and inspire people to take a thoughtful and introspective look at what actions they can take in their own lives to bring about change. One hundred percent of the sales of this Journal will be donated to the organizations below.
The Loveland Foundation: An organization dedicated to providing mental-health resources and support to communities of color—especially Black women and girls.
The Conscious Kid: An education, research, and policy organization dedicated to reducing bias and promoting positive identity development in youth.
BEAM: An organization working to remove the barriers that Black people experience getting access to or staying connected with emotional health care and healing.
The D.C. Workbook supports Reading Partners DC whose mission is to help elementary school students across Washington, D.C. master essential reading skills by engaging community volunteers to provide individualized literacy tutoring with measurable results. Proceeds of this Workbook, through December 2020, provides young students with culturally diverse books they can enjoy at our reading centers or take with them to build their own libraries at home.
Appointed is female-founded and it is our intention and priority to be socially responsible. We released our first D.C. Workbook in 2016 as a way to give back to our local community, and have since realized there is more that we can do with our platform. Through Appointed Gives Back products, we are proud to support causes that our team cares deeply about.
