Black Lives Matter: An Ongoing Directory For Continual Support

Travel is for everyone. This is why we design and create thoughtful and long-lasting pieces, tell unique travel experiences, and share countless amounts of ways to make travel easier so you can focus on making memories.

Unfortunately, racism is a global issue BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People Of Color) experience in daily life and while traveling. While this isn’t news for most, the need for an inclusive vision of travel is more important than ever.

While we hope to inspire travel through our products, we will continue to give more space to our Black community to share their experiences, perspectives, and businesses through our content on all channels.

CALPAK has donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund to support structural change to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice, and will be donating 10% of the net proceeds for the month of June 2020 to continue that support.

By actively supporting the Black Lives Matter movement through our words and through our actions now and in the future, we look forward to a world where travel can inspire a new and more inclusive definition of equality.

Below you’ll find an ongoing directory of resources and businesses to encourage us all to continually support our Black communities.
