The DawnSignPress Declaration...
Our world is changing. Though it may feel unsettling, change can be for the better.
For eons, people of the world have seen injustice.
Now is the time for all of us to work together, to understand and believe we are one. Let's join together to support unity and peace. In response to current events, DawnSignPress has declared our commitment to goals for the future. Any group that is marginalized or oppresed, DSP supports you. We stand with you and are against discrimination. We promise to accept change, to keep our eyes open to listen and learn. In our materials, our workplace and our community far and wide, if we notice injustice. we will work for equity.
We know we can do better. We will do better.
