What better day to launch the Be The Change Collection than June 19th, in honor of Juneteenth! We will have three tees, all associated with supporting a different organization, that will represent a different focus that we feel is important for change. Past, Present & Future.
The first focus is the Past, Black history. No, it's not Black History Month, but it's more important now than ever to really learn, understand and acknowledge black history every month of the year. So much isn't taught in schools, and there are many organizations out there that are available to educate the public.
Our chosen organization for the Past is National Museum of African American History and Culture. It is the largest African American museum in the country and they have great resources for talking about race, bias and so much more!
For the Present, our chosen organization is the Black Lives Matter Foundation (BLM)! They were founded in 2013 and have grown to become a global organization (US, UK & Canada). Their mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local communities to have the power to intervene in violence that impacts the black community.
Lastly is the Future. You may ask yourself, isn't all of this to work to create a better future? The answer is YES! However, we have our youngest and most innocent population that are in need of support, and they are our FUTURE! Thankfully there are some organizations out there that support Black youth, like the National Black Child Development Institute. They mostly support families with Black children to ensure they have access to quality care and education.
We thank you for partnering with us and our fight for change in equality and justice for the Black community and for all!
