We share a common ideology of goodness and aspire to affect positive change within our community and beyond. Joining the House as a member gives you access to our gatherings and partner exclusives.JOIN THE ADVENTURE
Black Lives Matter
"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou
Knowledge is power.
Today and every day, we must educate ourselves and others.
We need to have difficult conversations with our families and friends. We need to understand our own privileges and consider what we can do with the power we have to provide support for and amplify the voices of those who need it. We need to ask ourselves difficult questions - What we are willing to risk, what we are willing sacrifice, for justice?
We need to listen, learn, take action. It is our responsibility to create a more just society.
Below are some of resources we hope are helpful to everyone.

House of Waris x Tokyobike
Waris worked with our friends at @tokyobike.us to curate their latest Tokyo Slow Mixtape, an extension of their Slow Down Series.
Tokyo Slow Mixtape 06 is intended to provide you additional moments of peace, calm, discovery and escape.
“Tokyo Slow takes me to the tropical island of my dreams. Slowing down is easy. The real trick is to bring that vibe back to everyday life”
