At Subaru of Glendale we take pride in forming long-lasting relationships with our customers regardless of their race, ethnicity, age, gender, or sexual orientation. In light of the recent protests against injustice and racism, Subaru of America made the following statement regarding actions to address racism:

“Subaru of America, Inc. stands with a nation rising to fight social injustice after the senseless deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks along with untold other Black Americans. We believe Black lives matter. The events of the past three weeks, which have led to nationwide protests for justice, speak to the deep-seated anger, frustration, exhaustion and fear felt by Black citizens in our communities, the depth of which is just now starting to be understood by all Americans.

It's something that all of us need to reflect on and truly ask ourselves “What can we do?” What actions can we take to alleviate and correct these social injustices which have plagued our society for far too long? At Subaru, we like to pride ourselves on being "more than a car company." This means we have a responsibility to do what we can to address racism in all its forms, whether systemic, structural, institutional, or individual.

The profound sadness we feel must give way to action. To that end, today we are announcing several actions that Subaru is taking in service of relevant, sustainable and systemic change:

Working together with the leadership of our employee resource group Black & Latino Employee Network for Diversity at Subaru (BLENDS), Subaru is announcing a $500,000 donation to the Equal Justice Initiative. EJI is an organization committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.”
