Our support for social justice

Adrian Nazari, CEO

The past few days have been very tough for the United States—especially the Black Community—as the entire country has been grappling with the senseless killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and others.

As I listen, watch, and read about what is going on around us, I sympathize with the grief, anger and fear, including that of many here at Credit Sesame. Our company is founded on the belief that everyone should have equal access to opportunities for a better life, and in light of the recent events in Minnesota, our own communities, and throughout the country, I want to make sure that we can lend our voice and platform to show solidarity for social and racial equality.

As a step forward, we showed a black screen on our website for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the length of time George Floyd was held down by police. Our hope is that all of us take a moment to pause and reflect on how we can each do our part to better our world. This moment took place on Thursday, June 4, at 12pmPT/3pmET. Following this moment, a banner will remain on our website showing our ongoing support for the black community.

I realize that this is a symbolic gesture and that everyone will process and contribute in their own ways. With that in mind, I encourage all of us to be open and discuss these tough and often uncomfortable topics as a way to align, unify, and move forward as a team and society.

We look forward to creating a better future for financial wellness and beyond.

I understand the injustice that has gone on and continues to happen. I believe that if we all were referred to as individuals not black or white or Asian ect. . The other thing to keep in mind is not all police are bad and should not be referred to in that manner. They are also individuals and should be addressed as that. I completely agree there is wrong happening out here but all the violence and destruction is not getting the right point across either

If you stand with the Black community, you need to capitalize the word “Black”.

You are racist. You raise up one specific race above the rest. You've sold out your integrity for the opinion of the loud few, that does not reflect the majority of the population. I'll be cancelling and deleting my account.

Goodbye credit Sesame. While I understand that it wasn’t right what happened to this man it is an ill conceived effort on your part to make the black community stand out over any other community there should be equal rights for all and for businesses start making a political stance is part of the problem we’re having in this country because it’s creating a bigger racial divide not a smaller one

Stand with every community regardless of race, color, creed or profession. Shitty statement, stick to monitoring our credit, not becoming an activist!

This country has a SIN probably, not a SKIN probably. We all need to pray, repent and treat everyone as brothers and sisters.
