Open to everyone.
Closed to Racism.
Open to everyone. Closed to racism has a simple aim. Help businesses take a stand against racism.
By joining 'Open to everyone. Closed to racism' you can use your premises and online platforms to show your staff and customers that you stand against racism. You will receive anti-racism and allyship education resources for you and your team and importantly, you will also donate to grassroots organisations that have a hands-on approach to helping people from underrepresented groups to release their potential in business.
This all started with a simple premise.
Give a small British, coastal town the opportunity to show support whilst so many people protested around the world to fight racism.
The idea was to create something visual, thought-provoking and simple that business owners could share in their storefronts on the High Street. If lots of stores took part, each small action would be amplified and united it would be more noticeable. It had the potential to get attention and inspire discussion that might not normally take place.

“Open to Everyone, Closed to Racism is a brilliant and brave organisation - I love the simple but powerful way it confronts racism. I’m conscious of the impact of racism because its affected me since I was born. The fact Jess has felt compelled to do this as someone who does not share these experiences, is truly inspiring. Create Not Hate is grateful and excited for this partnership and we look forward to seeing the powerful impact we can make together.”
