In response to the recent murder of George Floyd by members of the Minneapolis police department - and countless other deaths, beatings and injustices inflicted upon black and minority communities around the world - Skewed Latitude has decided to redefine it’s entire mission and focus exclusively on supporting anti-racist and anti-homophobic organizations through our hand crafted “Nets of Wonder” and jewelry designs. I understand this may come as a surprise to many of our loyal customers, but as a black and woman owned business it’s important we take a firm stand for what we believe in and challenge others to do the same.

There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for any individual, group or organization to treat another with hate or disrespect based on the color of their skin, the gender they embrace, the god they believe in or any other characteristic that defines us as human beings. Moving forward, 100% of all profits will be donated to local and grass-roots campaigns dedicated to eradicating systemic racism, advocating for LGBTQ+ equality and advancing the lives, businesses and aspirations of these diverse, underserved communities. 

As a bi-racial child, I grew up without a distinct voice and often felt stifled by the weight of figuring out where I fit in. Now as an adult, finding my voice remains a challenge but the powerful lessons of recent events have fundamentally changed me as a person and for perhaps the first time, it’s time to speak up - FUCKING SCREAM - enough is enough. Some may find this new voice overtly strong or even disagreeable at times. But I’d rather rise up and be challenged to grow, then fall silent to ignorance and apathy. Thanks for sharing your own voice with us on this new journey.

Much love, Charis
