Kudo and High Five To Ben & Jerry's For Standing With Black Lives Matter!
Reader, Ben and Jerry's has joined the Black Lives Matter movement and I love it. The ice cream company posted a statement signed by the founders Friday on its website. The company's tweet was retweeted nearly 40,000 times and liked more than 53,000 times. "They matter because they are children, brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers," the statement opens. "They matter because the injustices they face steal from all of us -- white people and people of color alike. They steal our very humanity." Why Black Lives Matter is the headliner on their website! This is not the first time Ben & Jerry's stands for social justice issues and it sure won't be the last!
Personal, I love that they are not fazed by customers turning their backs. I am very happy to see a company as big as Ben & Jerry’s making an attempt to plead for compassion for and understanding of a group of people that faces injustices most in our society never will. What do you think about corporations publicly speaking out on hot-button matters? Should they or shouldn’t they? Sound off in the comments section below!
Thank You Ben & Jerry!
