Cottontail would like to acknowledge that we are on the unceded ancestral lands of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
You can do something today to stand in solidarity with the First Peoples of this land by paying Real Rent.
Cottontail is committed to the ongoing learning and unlearning necessary to be an antiracist organization. Our staff pledges to create and expand opportunities for service workers and communities that have historically been overlooked. Cottontail is obligated to dismantle systemic racism in our community and understands the urgency and importance of this work.
Cottontail commits to:
Articulate the necessity of cultivating a deeper understanding of the communities that we serve, and incorporate their perspectives, needs, feedback, and priorities into our strategic decisions and leadership.
Support the BIPOC community with access to space and resources and evaluate all booking inquiries through a racial equity lens.
Prioritize intentional recruitment and hiring practices by expanding recruitment outside existing networks.
Commit to the ongoing practice of antiracism as individuals and as an organization by fostering a culture of accountability and receptivity to learning.
Actively support the anti-racism efforts of other service industry businesses and organizations.
