To Whom it May Concern:
I have been a longtime [patron/supporter/consumer] of your [establishment/organization/brand] and am reaching out to you because I noticed your company has yet to make a public statement regarding your support for the Black Lives Matter movement and your willingness to bring awareness to systematic racial oppression. I am curious about your reasoning for not speaking out during this pivotal moment in our history? I would love to have a discussion regarding your feelings and share some resources I have found helpful in gaining a deeper understanding of this important issue.
I think our community has made it abundantly clear that we stand with our black neighbors. Will you stand with us? Given your platform, you have the privilege of reaching a diverse and widespread audience. I implore you to utilize that platform for good.
I hope you will reconsider your silence and work towards becoming actively anti-racist and understand that my own continued support for your business hinges on your response.
I sincerely hope I can continue to give [insert business name here] my business.
