Palace’s Statement on Anti-Racism

To Our Valued Community,

In light of the recent events in our nation and the tragic deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and so many others, we feel it is our duty to make our stance on racism clear to our community: Palace condemns racism and all forms of discrimination. We stand with the Black community and all those who fight against systemic racism.

Palace’s core values are integrity, respect and trust. We strive to live by these values in all that we do. We have always sought to treat all employees, suppliers and customers as valuable human beings regardless of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Each and every person deserves to be treated fairly and with respect. Every interaction is an opportunity to affirm these values.

Racism and discrimination are the opposite of the values that we stand for. To that end we are exploring ways we can best support racial equality as a company.

  • We are making a donation to the newly established George Floyd Memorial Scholarship Fund at Cabrillo College.
  • We will require that all employees receive supplemental training to ensure they have the most current tools and resources to report cases of harassment specific to racism and discrimination in the workplace.
  • We will continue to be inclusive with the artists we highlight in our retail stores and the partners we do business with across all facets of our company.

We believe this is a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. We pledge to continuously revisit how we can better support racial equality.

Thank you,

The Trowbridge Family
