This section of will be dedicated to listening, learning and doing our part in the areas of social justice and anti-racism. We – the Kraft family and the Kraft Group businesses – will share some of the actions we are taking to educate ourselves and participate in initiatives that we believe will improve and advance society. We understand our platform in the New England and sports communities, and we hope that our own actions will inspire actions by others. Together, we can create a world of equity, work to end systemic racism and create meaningful change in our community.

Much more to come…
