Linden Labs has decided to voice their displeasure at the recent immigration executive Order from President Trump. Usually at Kultivate we shy away from political reporting, but as we exist in the virtual world of Second Life, which is owned and operated by Linden Labs, we felt that posting this is one of the exceptions of the political rule. You can read the entire statement below:

We at Linden Lab are extremely disappointed in and adamantly opposed to Trump’s recent executive order on immigration. We reject racism, intolerance, and xenophobia.

We are proud to include immigrants among our leadership, colleagues, and customers, as well as our families, friends, and communities. We value diversity, compassion, and understanding, and we are proud that our products enable people to come together and form meaningful connections regardless of differences in their offline lives.

Trump’s order is counter to what we value and antithetical to American ideals. We join the many voices calling on the US government to remove this restriction as quickly as possible and to refrain from imposing additional barriers that threaten opportunities for immigrants, under-represented minorities, and women.
