Diversity and Inclusion Statement
As a Women and Indian American owned and operated company, culture is the essence of Farmer’s Daughter Fibers. We strive to make diversity and inclusion at the forefront of our company. We take a holistic approach to this by educating people about the culture and diversity FDF has to offer and by standing with, up, and in solidarity of marginalized groups of people. We do this through the spiritual artistry in our yarns, social media platforms, and in our local community where we fight to stop sex trafficking and better the basic needs, education, and artistic expression of American Indian children. We have used our success and platform to start the Sister’s United Initiative, which donates monthly to organizations supporting MMIP and American Indian children. Empowerment is at the core of this initiative. We do not tolerate disrespect or violence against BIPOC, LGBTQ2IAAP+, or other marginalized groups of people, ever. This work is continuing and will shift and grow as we do.
BIPOC = Black, indigenous people of color
lbtq2iaap+ = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer, Two Spirit, Intersex, A-sexual, A-gender, Pan-sexual, + everyone else
MMIP = Missing and Murdered indigenous people
