Changing the world one random act of kindness at a time.


Social Equity & Justice

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Amplify. Educate. Inspire.

Random Acts is, and always has been, committed to conquering the world through kindness. Kindness begins with the respect and celebration of each human being, and with equal protection, support, and opportunities for all. But that is only the beginning.

As we began developing this statement of support for racial equality, we at Random Acts quickly realized that we did not want to simply offer our supporters a confirmation of our position that, “we believe racism is bad and Black lives matter.” Those are both true, of course! But actions speak louder than words. We want to go beyond hollow, performative declarations or simple reassurance that we support what should be the baseline of human decency. We believe this is an opportunity to not only reaffirm our commitment to equality, but to empower our global community to cultivate a culture that is kind, just, and equal.

Kindness is not meek. Kindness has a spine. It takes courage to make change, especially when that change is packaged in steeped traditions and raw emotions. Being kind also means doing (and encouraging) the uncomfortable work of looking inward. We must identify opportunities to grow, and take meaningful action to make sure we are “walking the walk,” not just “talking the talk.” Being kind means taking a stand and being willing to wade into controversy. Kindness always has a ripple effect — and sometimes, it makes waves.

This page is dedicated to that mission. Our intention is to educate on issues of social equality and justice. To amplify the voices of the marginalized, and of those who are helping affect change. To inspire Random Acts supporters to create a better world through kindness.

Let’s make some waves together.
