Given the alarming rise in hate speech and crime, Minnie + George will now be donating 10% of all its retail sales to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
As listed on their website, the mission of the SPLC is to:
- Monitor hate groups and other extremists throughout the United States and expose their activities to the public, the media and law enforcement.
- To reduce prejudice, improve intergroup relations and supporting equitable school experiences for our nation's children.
- Seek justice for the most vulnerable people in society.
This is just a first, small step for Minnie + George. We will be doing more in the coming weeks, months and years. We'd love to learn about other organizations and businesses dedicated to social and environmental justice, so please feel free to share, in the comment section below, ones that you feel passionate about and would like to see our business involved with in the future.
