NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund
This is a historical moment and we feel the need to help.

We will be donating 5% of all sales throughout the remainder of 2020 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.



The LDF was founded by legendary civil rights icon Thurgood Marshall in 1940, a time when the nation’s aspirations for equality and due process of law were stifled by widespread state-sponsored racial inequality.

Marshall led LDF to the 1954 landmark victory in Brown v. Board of Education ending the doctrine of “separate but equal” and outlawing segregation in our nation. Marshall later became the first African-American Justice of the United States Supreme Court. LDF has acquired an unparalleled record of expert legal advocacy in state and federal courts and its legal victories serve as the foundation for the civil rights that all Americans enjoy today.

LDF works to secure full and fair access to democratic citizenship by promoting equality in education, voting and political participation, economic justice and criminal justice. Among its current priorities, LDF seeks to:

1. increase equity in education by increasing graduation rates (K-12 and college) among African Americans
2. foster adoption of racially equitable and research-based approaches to school discipline
3. ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act, National Voter Registration Act, and other voting rights laws
4. ensure that the job selection process does not negatively impact African Americans
5. reduce employment barriers to those with criminal records
6. decrease disproportionate incarceration and sentencing as well as racially biased exercise of discretion by police and prosecutors. Historically, LDF has worked through the courts and through advocacy to the executive and legislative branches. LDF also uses educational outreach, monitoring of federal and state government activity, coalition-building and policy research to advance its mission. Additionally, through its scholarship, fellowship, and internship programs, LDF helps students to attend and graduate from many of the nation’s best colleges, universities, and law schools and to develop a lasting commitment to racial justice and public service.

LDF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We wanted to take the time to listen and figure out how we could do our part. We might not change the world with our contribution, but we’re going to show our commitment. If everyone does what they can, it will make a difference. All companies, all people.
