Starbucks to Close All Stores May 29 for Racial-Bias Training!

posted by Nicole - 

Obviously we know what happened here in Philly over the weekend where two black men were arrested in Starbucks in Rittenhouse for literally doing nothing.  Starbucks CEO flew to Philly to meet with the Mayor and other leaders, as well as the two men who were arrested.  And now, they are taking it even a step further. 

The racial bias training will be provided on May 29 to about 175,000 workers.

"I've spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to fix it," Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

"While this is not limited to Starbucks, we're committed to being a part of the solution," he said. "Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local communities."
