The staff at Amazing Threads want to take this time to express our deepest sympathies to not only the family of George Floyd, but to the entire black community. It is not time to be silent. Silence is complacent. It is time to be outspoken against systemic racism and the oppression of people of color. We stand with you. We are listening. We commit to continue to learn how we can be more effective allies and amplify the black voices in our local communities.
