History has shown us time and time again that even through the worst adversity, Black people rise with resiliency and continue to push forward in the name of justice and equality. Last year, we witnessed an awakening in our country—that exposed the systemic racial inequities which have existed for far too long—and we put out a call to action for every individual to acknowledge and take responsibility for contributing to a more equitable America.
At Lyft, we’ll continue to do our part in breaking down barriers to access while striving for greater equity, racial justice, and allyship. This Black History Month, we invite you to push forward with us.
Black History Month is a time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of the Black community while honoring the many Black and African Americans whose sacrifices allow us to persevere today. Lyft was built on the idea of community — a community that gets stronger when the voices of all its members are represented. Through continued representation and storytelling we are committed to amplifying the Black voices within Lyft and across the communities we serve in order to push forward.
Join us this Black History Month as invite you to push forward with Lyft for an in-person mixer and panel (in accordance with Illinois' COVID-19 guidelines) celebrating the work of Black women in civics, business, leadership, community, and entrepreneurship and how they help push Black women and the Black community forward in the spaces they occupy.
