How fashion and beauty brands are supporting Black Lives Matter



This article originally appeared on InStyle.com by Alyssa Hardy.

Protestors around the country are demanding justice in the police killing of George Floyd, as well as an end to police brutality and violence toward Black people. Part of this fight includes pushing brands and corporations to do better by donating money and fixing the structures within their companies to support Black workers.

While many have pledged to give, there are still so many that have not, particularly in the fashion industry. Below are all of the brands that have made commitments and showed support to protestors. If you’d like to make a donation to support Black Lives Matter or one of the hundreds of organizations in this fight, here is a comprehensive list.

Beauty Brands:

Glossier

Donating $500K across Black Lives Matter, The NAACP Legal Defense, and Education Fund, The Equal Injustice Initiative, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, and We The Protesters.

To our Mented community, We want to be honest about something. In times like these – times when our world is in crisis and our community is heartbroken – carrying on with our day-to-day operations can feel like a Herculean task. As founders we love what we do; we love that we get to do it, but there are days when selling another lipstick feels like the smallest, least important thing we can do in the midst of this chaos. Last week we witnessed George Floyd’s murder at the hands of police who are sworn to protect and serve; this was on the heels of Ahmaud Arbery’s murder, which was on the heels of Breonna Taylor’s. While makeup can often be a solace, there’s not enough gloss in the world to ease the pain we feel. The truth is, despite our pain, work must go on. But that doesn’t mean it’s business as usual. For the month of June, we’ll be donating a portion of every sale to support protestors around the country, starting with bail funds in New York City. We’re also giving our team every Friday this month off to promote mental health and give them the space to digest, reflect, and act. Finally, we will be hosting a completely free masterclass on starting an e-commerce business on Thursday, June 18th at 3 pm ET. Building a company that empowers and employs people of color all over the world has been one of our greatest joys, and in many ways, it’s our daily form of protest. We would love to share our insights and help as many of you as possible; you can register for the class via our story. Like so many of you, we are struggling to make sense of this time. We are grateful to be doing our small part to help our community, and we are grateful to you for being a part of it. With love, KJ and Amanda

A letter to my fellow white people.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Posting and bringing awareness in situations of racial injustice have been a long-time priority for me. However, things just felt different this time and it took a minute to figure out how to change the approach. I couldn’t just throw up a post of George Floyd and make a call and sign a petition and then 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼? While those things are helpful and it IS important to do that, it’s not enough from us anymore. Those actions MUST become the norm, but today I want to to tell you how I’m am personally taking the next steps and urging you join me. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ •NOT ASKING MY BLACK FRIENDS TO EDUCATE ME OR TO SUPPORT ME IN BEING AN ANTI-RACIST. I used to do that. I used to call my friends frantically when something happened and ask what I can do to help. But after much education and through my own research, I realized I’m only adding work to their plate which is already too full just by living in their own skin. I realized I have an entire internet at MY fingertips and need to put the effort in ALL BY MYSELF.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ •ACTION. I’ve made my calls and signed multiple petitions, obviously. But again, that’s not enough.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ •ORGANIZING. I’m compiling a list of black owned beauty businesses that I want to raise up and share on my platform. Not because anyone needs me to, but because I genuinely want to see more black women entrepreneurs being lifted up in the beauty space and more black women rising to the executive ranks and being compensated accordingly.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ •DONATING. Here are places I will be donating to today:⁣⁣⁣⁣ -BLACK GIRLS CODE, which teaches African American girls how to code 💕👩🏾‍💻⁣⁣⁣⁣ -SPELMAN COLLEGE, w historically black college for women 👩🏿‍🎓⁣⁣⁣⁣ -THE INNOCENCE PROJECT, which exonerates people who were wrongly convicted.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Join me. If you have questions, reach out and ask me. If you need resources on anti-racism education, ask me. We made this system and we are the ones who have to fix this system. 🤍📸: the one + only @sarashakeel

Designer Aurora James is asking corporations to pledge 15% of their stock to Black-owned businesses.

View this post on Instagram

@wholefoods @target @shopmedmen @walmart @saks @sephora @netaporter @barnesandnoble @homedepot I am asking you to commit to buying 15% of your products from Black owned businesses. . So many of your businesses are built on Black spending power. So many of your stores are set up in Black communities. So many of your sponsored posts are seen on Black feeds. This is the least you can do for us. We represent 15% of the population and we need to represent 15% of your shelf space. . Whole Foods if you were to sign on to this pledge, it could immediately drive much needed support to Black farmers. Banks will be forced to take them seriously because they will be walking in with major purchase orders from Whole Foods. Investors for the very first time will start actively seeking them out. Small businesses can turn into bigger ones. Real investment will start happening in Black businesses which will subsequently be paid forward into our Black communities. . Dont get me wrong, I understand the complexities of this request. I am a business Woman. I have sold millions of dollars of product over the years at a business I started with $3500 at a flea market. So I am telling you we can get this figured out. This is an opportunity. It is your opportunity to get in the right side of this. . So for all of the ‘what can we do to help?’ questions out there, this is my personal answer. #15PercentPledge . I will get texts that this is crazy. I will get phone calls that this is too direct, too big of an ask, too this, too that. But I don’t think it’s too anything, in fact I think it’s just a start. You want to be an ally? This is what I’m asking for.
