After their sort after the release tees that benefited the Covid-19 relief fund, the Supreme brand is adding another $500K To social justice.
The streetwear brand ‘Supreme‘ recently announced its pledge of $500K to be shared amongst social justice reform platforms. The contribution will be awarded to multiple organizations that are dedicated to combating social injustice nationwide. According to the ‘Supreme’ post on IG, the money will be split amongst Black Lives Matter, Equal Justice Initiative, Campaign Zero, and Black Futures Lab organizations.
Like various brands, the donation follows a public outcry after the death of George Floyd. A viral video detailed the last few minutes of the 46-year-old unarmed George Floyd who was killed by four police officers of the Minneapolis P.D. Police brutality videos have become an all too common part of social media. The untimely murder of another unarmed black man has led American citizens of all races and ethnicities to take to the streets to practice their right to protest against the targeted injustice.
Among other donations included are streetwear brands Flight Club’s donation to the Bail Project, and Kith who has included the American Civil Liberties Union and the Minnesota Freedom Fund among others.
