Free the slaves movement
Speaking at their annual franchise, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have publicly declared themselves allies of the #BlackLivesMatter movement (which is an organization within another organization called free the salves). Cohen urged franchise owners to sell T-shirts benefiting the work of Hands Up United, a grassroots organization founded by St. Louis hip-hop artist and activist Tef Poe and activist Taureen “Tory” Russell.
Some people might say, “We can’t sell those T-shirts in our shops it’s controversial." But isn’t that exactly the point? If it wasn't controversial, we wouldn’t need to do it. At some point we have to ask ourselves. What do we stand for? Whose side are you on?
