In this time of unrest in the United States, we stand in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter. It is far too easy to look at the current events unfolding and choose to remain silent, simply because we are not ourselves black. But we choose to not remain silent…— Board&Dice (@BoardAndDice) June 2, 2020— GoliathGamesUS (@GoliathGamesUS) June 2, 2020

We are going silent on social media because there are more important voices that need to be heard.#BlackLivesMatter— Plaid Hat Games (@PlaidHatGames) June 2, 2020

AEG cannot, and will not, remain silent at this moment in history. We must stand witness to what we see and what we know and we must act on that knowledge.#BlackLivesMatter— Alderac (@alderac) June 5, 2020

Black lives matter. We’ve donated $5,000 to the ACLU and $5,000 to Black Lives Matter. We’re also taking time to reflect on how we can make positive change both within in our company and within our industry. #blackouttuesday— Ravensburger North America (@RavensburgerNA) June 2, 2020— Gamewright (@Gamewright) June 10, 2020
