redistribution process

 

what is redistribution?

Redistribution is similar to donating but is different in a very important way.  Redistribution is "the distribution of something in a different way, typically to achieve greater social equality." - Oxford Languages. The word and act of redistribution focuses on contribution that comes from a place of social justice and works to create equity and provide reparations. In comparison, donations, while sometimes having similar motivations, is often considered non-mandatory gifting while redistribution is a necessary act about continuously combating injustice and changing the systems that create the injustice in the first place.

Brown Girls Climb

"BGC is a social enterprise which strives to facilitate mentorship, provide access, uplift leadership, and celebrate representation in the outdoors and climbing for People of the Global Majority*

*We use "people of the global majority" (PGM) interchangeably with "black, indigenous, and people of color" (BIPOC), since black, indigenous, and people of color represent over 80% of the world’s population. This wording points out the demographic inaccuracy of the euphemism "minority" and can feel more empowering for some people." - https://www.browngirlsclimb.com/about/

redistribution receipts

At the end of every year quarter (Jan-March, Apr-Jun, July-Sept, Oct-Dec), I take the price of each print, sticker, wholesale order, commission, etc. sold and redistribute 20% of the price. Some products go to certain groups but those that do not are split between all of the groups. 

Redistribution receipts can be found below or on my Instagram (@_empath_art_) under a story highlight labelled " 20% RECEIPTS".

Please let me know if you would like me to show or do this differently!
