On Tuesday June 2nd, Fossil will be closing our US stores and no online orders will be shipped in support of #BlackOutTuesday.
The events over the past week have been deeply upsetting. We have watched the news and feel a mix of sadness and outrage. The senseless killing of black lives highlights the ongoing injustice and discrimination in our country that should not be happening.
We have a responsibility to unite against racism and social injustice. This starts first with our community of employees to make sure the dialogue is open, encouraging, and productive. We are creating a safe space for hard conversations so that long-overdue change can start to happen. This change takes work and time and we all have an obligation to be accountable and responsible together.
While this is only one day, we are committed to continuing the fight for equality. We will be using this day to collectively reflect on what we as a company can do to put action towards change.
