Fundraising for the Equal Justice Initiative
IHS Markit stands in solidarity with our black colleagues and with all those who face discrimination in our communities around the world. As a company, we are committed to inclusivity and equality and over the coming weeks and months we will take strong action to improve the inclusion and diversity within our firm. These actions will not be temporary reactions to current events, but long-term commitments to change.
As a first step, our teams are raising money for four important charities that are making significant impact in black communities. To further these efforts, for every dollar raised, IHS Markit will match the donation.
The Equal Justice Initiative provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in US state jails and prisons. They challenge the death penalty and excessive punishment and provide re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.
EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. They are committed to changing the narrative about race in America. They create films and reports that explores the history of racial injustice in the USA. EJI provides research and recommendations to assist advocates and policymakers in the critically important work of criminal justice reform.
IHS Markit is proud to support this critical work.
