Racism and oppression have historically impacted and continue to profoundly effect Black and brown communities and the nation at large. The Ad Council is committed to using our platform to support other external organizations dedicated to dismantling systemic racism and injustice.
In this series, we’re spotlighting content created by these organizations that will help spark more dialogue and action around racial justice. We hope you’ll take the time to learn more about these organizations and the great work that they’re doing. You can see the first few pieces of content in our Racial Justice Series below, and stay tuned for more additions throughout the year.
