Napa Green Commitment to Racial and Social Justice

At Napa Green we pledge to continuously examine and deepen our understanding of power imbalances and social biases in our everyday world. 

We commit to take action whenever possible to build a more just community, and partner with individuals and organizations that share this commitment. We seek to be a visible ally and take public positions not only on social inequities and injustices within our industry and community, but also within the broader social justice movement.
