We screwed up and we apologize

Published September 15, 2020

We screwed up. We published a cartoon in our July print issue that caused harm to members of our community by making light of Black Lives Matter. That was wrong, and we apologize.

We'd like to thank those who have done an excellent job articulating the impact of this cartoon and challenging BRAIN to do better.

We can't undo this mistake, but we're committed to improvement going forward. Our new CEO recently signed the Outdoor Industry CEO Pledge, which committed our company to a set of actions and guidelines. You will be seeing reporting from us on our progress against these goals.

Please continue to hold us accountable and reach out if you have more questions or comments.
