Australia, where my company Meetniq is based, is stolen land. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people never ceded sovereignty, and we don't have treaties in place.
There are many campaigns to address the injustice, inequality, and dishonesty with which white people have treated First Nations people in my country, and one of them is the call for white people or colonisers to Pay The Rent.
At Meetniq, we currently do this by offering free access to First Nations controlled campaigns, at Meetniq.org, our service for not-for-profit organistaions. We are pre-funding/bootstrapped, so are not yet in a position to directly pay, but we can provide our services.
We also provide free access to campaigns in low income countries.
Founders, are there similar campaigns where you operate? How do you address inequities where you live through the way you run your business?
*I'm white, and my position as a coloniser, and beneficiary of racism is clear and simple. I understand that your experience may be different, especially in countries where there is a history of slavery and forced movement. I'm 100% not interested in telling black women founders what they should be doing, but I'm definitely interested to hear what you think.
