Black Lives Matter

Big Cartel is committed to being an anti-racist company. We are built to be positive and inclusive. Art can be challenging, but it should never cross the line into hate and discrimination, or be used as a weapon to silence the voices of others. There is no room for hate, discrimination, or violence at Big Cartel.

Everyone has a role in the fight for justice. We are learning our place in the struggle and how we can help, and that is a messy, ongoing process. We will reflect, evolve, and update our practices and recommendations over time.

To start, our Prohibited Items Terms have been updated to reflect our role in the fight against racism and bigotry. We're also pledging money, work programs, and more for our community.
