Honoring our LGBTQ Community Today, Tomorrow, and All Days
We at Pivot believe in celebrating the bold, bright tapestry of different races, nationalities, and orientations and that create the social fabric of our community.
This year, MillerKnoll is introducing a special edition Pride Petal End Table made specifically to help raise funds for nonprofits. The limited-edition tables, designed by Richard Shultz, will be donated to nonprofit organizations working to progress LGBTQ+ rights in communities worldwide. Selected in partnership with the company’s corporate foundation and LGBTQ+ Equity Team, the global nonprofit partners will use the tables to raise funds for their organizations through auctions. Nonprofits include:
- OutRight Action International
- Hetrick-Martin Institute
- Lambert House
- New Avenues for Youth
- London Friend
- Casa Frida Refugio LGBT+, and others.
Herman Miller and Design Within Reach are also continuing a partnership with OutRight Action International through the Pride Eames Hang-It-All. For each Hang-It-All sold, $25 is donated to OutRight Action International, a global nonprofit organization that’s mission is to support human rights and fundamental freedoms for LGBTQ+ people everywhere. MillerKnoll is also supporting OutRight’s Pride With A Purpose campaign this June to commemorate the history of Pride, celebrate progress, and draw attention to the ongoing challenges facing our communities around the globe.
Pride month is about celebration, but also education, awareness and advocacy - especially for those in underserved populations. We have collected several resources and organizations, linked below, that support LGBTQ youth, people of color, immigrants and countless others in our society.
