In consideration of the events that have taken place over the last few weeks, we will be stopping our usual content schedule, to stand with every black member of our community and beyond. As a travel platform and community that aims to connect you to cultures worldwide, so many of the cultural scenes we cover at Trippin are birthed from black culture.
"What can we do better to create long lasting change? How can we encourage sustainable behaviours that are inclusive? How can we create awareness of racism within travel itself?"
We cannot and will not ignore the injustices constantly happening to the black community at the hands of institutionalised and systemic racism.
In reflecting on our role in this, we ask ourselves and our community, what can we do better to create long lasting change? How can we encourage sustainable behaviours that are inclusive? How can we create awareness of racism within travel itself?
Our role is to listen, share and set an example on how we can truly make a positive impact. Here are some resources which you can draw on to educate yourself, take action and stand with us regardless of geographic location.
