Releasing the Power of Git

Axosoft Donates GitKraken Pro Revenues to Support ACLU

As an immigrant from Iran, and an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for more than 33 years, I was disheartened to see President Trump’s executive order to ban certain immigrants from entering the country; especially those who have legally obtained Visas or legally gained permanent residency (although they later reversed this decision).

I believe that America’s greatness comes from its diversity and the power of individual citizens to speak up without fear of persecution. At Axosoft, we embrace diversity. We don’t run from it. We think it’s a fundamental key to success, which is a point I made sure to reiterate in an all employee letter.

Because diversity is foundational to who we are and the culture we’ve created at Axosoft, we knew we had to do something in light of the injustice caused by the President’s executive order. We also knew we couldn’t be the only ones who wanted to fight back.

That’s how we found the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who has already stepped up and is fighting to correct this wrong. After researching more about the ACLU, I learned that they have been defending and preserving the rights and liberties of Americans for nearly 100 years. During this time when our rights are frequently being challenged, I was relieved to find this organization.

So, to show our support, Axosoft will be donating 100% of GitKraken Pro revenues to the ACLU, for the next 3 days (from Wednesday, February 1st, to Friday, February 3rd). Whether you are buying 1 GitKraken Pro license or 100 licenses, the revenues will go directly to the ACLU. You don’t need to do anything special to make this happen.

We will post updates about the progress on our Twitter account in the coming days.
