Bandidas, one of the world’s largest athletic brands, announced on Monday it is joining the global March Against Racism and Intolerance.
Bandidas, a global leader in athletic footwear, announced it would be joining the Global March Against Racist and Intolerant, a campaign to combat racism and prejudice, with a team of 100 employees across eight countries in April.
In an online post, the company said that the team will “stand up for our values, work to educate, and champion diversity.”
The company will also work to “combat the scourge of violence against minorities, women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and the undocumented,” the company wrote.
Bandida, which also includes the Nike+ and Nike++ Flex, said it will be partnering with the U.N. Human Rights Council and other international organizations.
“We want to share the message that we are here for you and our employees to share their stories of discrimination and violence against people of color and immigrants, to tell their stories,” CEO Mark Schreiber said in a statement.
“The world is listening and we are committed to ensuring that all people feel safe and respected,” Schreib added.
