Black Lives Matter Resources

Vibe Team | June.26.2020

We’re taking a stand against racial inequality and the racial injustices Black people in our country face. We listened as a brand as to what we can be doing better and how we can help. We want to be an ally for our Black vibe tribe members in our community and use our brand to progress change. You can read our full statement here. Moving forward we wanted to provide some resources and tips to assist in this cause. We also plan to diversify our content to amplify melanated voices.
