Inclusion

The planning started three years ago, but with the ongoing pandemic, it is now needed more than ever: E-commerce giant Amazon just opened a homeless shelter for families in their headquarters in Seattle. Read more here.

Racism

Unfortunately, there is a long history of black people falsely being reported to the police. This week, a woman called the police on a bird watcher in Central Park, who simply asked her to put her dog on a leash. Watch the video.

Diversity

The art supplies company Crayola just announced that from July onwards, they are selling a new set of crayons, representing the world’s skin tones.

LGBTQ+

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, and we will see (virtual) rainbow flags everywhere. But what is the story behind the flag? Interesting video!
