NEXT is a people-powered company. The core of our mission is putting #DriversFirst and we care deeply about the drivers who have kept the economy moving during the pandemic. As well as our team members, customers, and the surrounding communities. We believe in everyone’s right to be treated equally, fairly, and respectfully. And will always support efforts and initiatives that protect and further that cause.
Today, we’ve launched a donation matching program and will be matching funds for any donation NEXT employees make to organizations that support civil rights. We believe it is our corporate responsibility to support causes that most affect our communities.
This is the first in a multi-tiered approach NEXT will implement to encourage fairness and equality.
If you would like to join NEXT in donating to this cause, here are two organizations our executive team has already supported:
For drivers who are on the road, please understand that the nationwide protests may result in unexpected issues and pose other challenges.
We encourage drivers to monitor the situations across the US as they evolve and over-communicate with fellow drivers. If you find yourself in a situation where traffic is blocked by protesters, please remain in the vehicle, lock the doors, and call dispatch immediately. We urge everyone to stay safe.
Today and everyday, support local businesses. Here is a list of locally Black-Owned restaurants within the Los Angeles area.
