“I founded F+R to EMPOWER women and that means ALL women. Our mission is to continue to learn and research ways that we can empower and be inclusive to every single woman”
-- Margi Gad, Fierce and Regal Founder
To our Fierce Friends,
The past week has been difficult and eye opening. Our team has taken time to listen, learn, and begin to understand further the privileges afforded to us each and every day. Our goal has been, and always will be, to unconditionally support women within and outside the Fierce and Regal community.
Much of our team is not equipped to speak about injustice and inequality firsthand. However, we feel a profound responsibility to allocate our resources and platform towards supporting the Black community.
In the next month, we will be donating our products and 10% of our proceeds to GirlTrek, a remarkable organization which is pioneering health movements for African-American women in high-need areas across the United States.
We want to take this time to reaffirm that we stand in solidarity with the Black community. We see you, and we want to hear from you about how we can do better.
To our strong F + R community: We encourage you to listen, reflect, donate, and continuously educate yourselves.
