End Racism: A Letter from our Founder

We at Quell do not tolerate any form of racial injustice. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many more should be alive today. Tomorrow is the third birthday of Quell Skateboarding. While we’ve had many accomplishments this year, this is not a time for celebrating. Our community, our world, our people are hurting.


I cannot begin to know what it is like to be a black person in America. What I can do is listen, educate and be understanding. I personally am here to listen to you and educate myself. I am open to any conversations to how we can be better allies. I am so fortunate to have a platform and a space where I hopefully can share some resources I have been turning to and donating towards.
