For nearly 70 years, Peanuts fans have turned to the comic strip and characters created by Charles Schulz for smiles and comfort, during good times and bad. For the past several weeks, those fans may have noticed that our social media pages have been quiet.
Like many around the world, the team at Peanuts Worldwide has been impacted by recent events, notably the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and Rayshard Brooks. We have used this time to reflect inwardly; to check in on our team and listen to the voices of our staff.
Peanuts Worldwide stands with the Black, Indigenous, and POC community within our organization and around the world. We know there is much to be done to address the racial inequalities in our society and are actively listening, learning, and working toward making changes in our company, our industry, and supporting the broader global community.
This is not an effort to be taken lightly; we are looking forward to enacting real change together. We will share updates on our corporate commitments here at PeanutsWorldwide.com.
