TIEM Takes Action: Supporting Racial Justice

Published in News on Dec 29, 2020

We stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism and historic oppression of the black community. This past spring, we took action and pledged to donate 5% of sales through the end of the year to racial justice organizations.

We are committed to fostering a community that values justice, compassion, and open mindedness.

Thanks to you, TIEM is donating $150,000 across The ACLU, NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and Black Lives Matter Global Movement.

We're sharing a glimpse into each organization and hope you are inspired to take action as well.

The ACLU has been at the center of nearly every major civil liberties battle in the U.S. for over 100 years. This vital work depends on the support of ACLU members in all 50 states and beyond. The ACLU also remains a champion of segments of the population who have traditionally been denied their rights, with much of our work today focused on equality for people of color, women, gay and transgender people, prisoners, immigrants, and people with disabilities.

#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.

TheNAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 80 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments.


We are proud of the community we have built here at TIEM and want to use our platform to inspire action toward equality and justice.
