~ just rosy operates on a principle of reciprocity ~
for this biz, reciprocity means:
(1) acknowledging that systems of colonialism + capitalism have preyed upon specific groups of people (currently collectively named as BIPOC) by causing intentional + unintentional harm to communities + ecosystems
(2) recognizing that, as an individual who has benefitted from these Euro-centric systems, it is my cosmic responsibility to respond to the harm caused
as a new + small biz it feels equal parts overwhelming + necessary to try and take on these structures that have been such a significant part of American life for forever. for now, i am focusing on doing one small bit at a time. below is the start of the JR reciprocity plan. all constructive feedback is welcome and can be directed to the JR email (firstname.lastname@example.org) !!
these are JR’s current commitments:
JR will set aside 10% of all profits in a reciprocity fund
JR will offer select pieces each month that send 100% profits to the fund
where does this $$ go?
donations to individuals most significantly affected by capitalism + colonialism
funding programs that promote community health + healing
* all 2020 donations were sent directly to BIPOC individuals or mutual fund organizations
