black lives matter

The past few weeks have both broken our hearts and fueled us to stand up for what we know is right. We believe in racial equality. We will continue to grow our network of Black creatives and employees to fight against systemic racism. We will stay committed to discovering, supporting, and buying from Black businesses. We will continue to rally and encourage others to do the same. To the Black members of our community: we hear you, we see you, and we are with you. We will do better. To the non-Black members of our community: it is up to each of us to stand with, speak up for, support, and show up for the Black community. We all have the power to do something. The power to speak out, if we haven’t. The power to educate ourselves, if we need to. The power to put our money, if we have it, toward real change.⁠ There is strength in numbers. Do something, start somewhere. In your mind, your heart, in your own home.

Let’s become more politically aware and make lifestyle changes that can positively affect the world we live in. The books you read, the business owners you support, the words you speak, the politicians you vote for, the brands you support, the lessons and love you teach your family all make a difference and matter. We have learned so much these past weeks and we don’t want to stop learning, petitioning and engaging. To support that initiative, and to encourage our community to do the same, we have launched an online editorial feed with links to all the content we have found helpful, actionable, and educational. Please take what you would like and share as you’d like.

With love,

Jhoanna Marissa + Willa Creative

we believe in the power of education

What we’ve learned most during this time is just how much we don’t know. Knowledge is power–join us as we continue to educate ourselves on black history, systematic racism, and how we can work to make change.
