The RESPECT Project
Updated: May 7, 2022
re·spect /rəˈspekt/ - verb - admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
Launched on the UN's Zero Discrimination Day, the Gallery “RESPECT” features stories of people of color through history and on a global scale. The gallery is an open, free of charge initiative organized by Evenness as a social project. The goal is to educate people and give them a platform to learn about history, hurdles, learnings and achievements via the stories of inspiring black innovators, scientists, politicians, poets, artists, civil activists, peace makers, sportsmen, journalists, and creatives.
"We believe Black History Month shouldn't be just a one month campaign-- knowledge that becomes present during the month should always be accessible," - says Eve Logunova Parker, Founder & CEO of Evenness. "We would like people to learn the most powerful voices in history that come from around the globe. Further, we would like people to learn the importance of respect among people."
Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they're different from you or you don't agree with them. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing. Unfortunately, our history shows that respect doesn't come naturally. And up to this day, we are still challenged to accept one another, stop discrimination and misjudgment, and create equal opportunities.
The Gallery is hosted in Extended Reality accessible via a web browser or smart phone. For the best experience, we recommend accessing this virtual space via your browser on a computer as you would need your phone for scanning QR codes to view video content.
From March till the end of November 2022 we will also be hosting monthly meet-ups to feature the stories of inspiring people of color and share the knowledge across various domains and countries. Stay tuned for the announcement & Subscribe to our Newsletter to receive the updates first hand.
