Black Lives Matter

At Rovin Ceramics we believe that Black Lives Matter. We condemn the unjust and unequal treatment of Black people and are committed to learning, listening, and acting in support of these beliefs. Historically artists play a vital role in movements of necessary change and progress. As a business supported by the artist community, it is our duty to speak out against racism and be active participants in the fight against inequality. 

There are many ways to support the Black Lives Matter movement.  We have assembled a list of contacts for our state government, organizations that benefit Black Lives Matter, Black communities and arts, and resources for further learning. We encourage you to educate yourself, make your voice heard, and spend your time and money on this important cause. Thank you all.
