Dear "American" and Multinational companies and organizations established in Brazil, I am glad you’ve posted black squares and spoke up for racial justice by investing more on the issue in the US. We recognize your actions in response to violence and your desire to make society a more equal place. I’m here to make a reflection: can we move further and make these actions global?
We saw companies like @apple
, @a24 @youtube @benandjerrys
and organizations like @fordfoundation
announcing the donation of millions of dollars to fight racial justice. We‘d love to see these actions extended to Brazil.
America is bigger than the US. In Brazil, black people represent more than 110 million people. Almost three times bigger than the afro american population in the US.
And yet, amongst the 500 biggest companies situated here, many of them american multinationals, less than 5% of executive roles are occupied by black people. As we can see, actions in "America" still don't reflect on America as a whole, and that includes Brazil.
Many of these companies, despite their so called committed to racial justice in the US, still don't even have a single black executive in their board. If black lives truly matter, we need to change this situation with a global perspective.
Please, may your investments and goals for racial justice in the workplace extend to Brazil? Let's make racial justice in the workplace a global fight for real?
Looking Forward to hearing from you
Best Regards ---- Prezadas empresas e organizações "Americanas" e Multinacionais estabelecidas no Brasil, fico feliz que você tenha colocado seu quadrado preto e até se manifestado por justiça racial investindo mais em Justiça Racial nos EUA.
Reconhecemos suas ações em resposta à violência racial. Podemos avançar ainda mais e tornar a igualdade racial uma causa global? A América é maior que os EUA. O Brasil também precisa de investimentos estruturados para a luta antirracista.
Marque aqui as empresas nacionais e multinacionais que vc acredita que deveriam investir na causa antirracista.
