Silence is no longer an option. We stand against discrimination, racism, oppression and social injustice and will continue to share the organisations, people and brands that are making real change through their actions.
Authenticity is key to brand activism. During weeks of protesting, we’ve seen a powerful shift in customers wanting to learn how to be better ‘allies’, and brands standing in solidarity to support their customers in the Black Lives Matter movement and for Pride Month.
From donating to raising awareness and educating others, brands are using their influence to make a difference. Target pledges to help re-build US cities affected by protesting, Glossier donates $500,000 to organisations that combat racial injustices and Harry’s unveils its ‘Shave With Pride Set, donating US profits to the Trevor Project.
