Now Is Not The Time For Silence

Now is not the time for silence.

Atelier957 was created to help women of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds look and feel their best. We cannot attain that goal as long as our systems remain broken, injustice remains widespread, and Black people live in fear.

Atelier957 stands for equality and we stand alongside those who are hurting. Our hearts have been breaking watching our communities suffer.

We know that now is not the time for "business as usual." We acknowledge that we have work to do and promise to continue to learn and listen. As a first step, we are sharing resources that we believe can help confront inequity and injustice and help rebuild the communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul that have been affected by recent events.
