The Nest Boycotts Wix in Solidarity with Palestine

BY LEIGH ROBBIE GAYMON-JONES | THE NEST FOUNDER, EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR

 

Five months of the Israeli war on Gaza have passed and here at The Nest we’ve grappled with how to best use our platform and power to support Palestinian freedom and advocate for a cease fire. We are a people of color-led creative agency whose values are rooted in collective liberation. Our value of connection centers fostering generous, reciprocal, and accountable relationships to the Earth and each other. So we asked ourselves, what could we do to stand in solidarity with Palestinains? How could we hold Israel accountable? The answer came in the form of a grassroots boycott targeting web building platform Wix.



Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Wix is a publicly-traded Israeli company worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Wix relies on free access to the internet and startup capital – access which is denied Palestinians living under Israeli occupation. Aaaand it just so happens that Wix is also the platform we used to lovingly design and launch our website just last fall. 


Although our website build and launch was a labor of love that required a lot of effort and care, we felt it was crucial to our values for us to migrate from Wix to a new platform and stand in solidarity with the boycott. We’re committing time and effort (resources that are precious for an early stage startup!) to redesign our website on Squarespace. Stay tuned for our new(er) launch!


Do you want to boycott Wix with us? If we’ve designed a website for you in the past, we’re offering a 10% discount if you’d like to migrate your website from Wix to SquareSpace. If we haven’t collaborated yet but would still like to chat about a website redesign, hit us up at hello@thenestcreatives.com! We’d love to chat with you about your vision.
