History that is alive to this day.
Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy of non-violent protest in the pursuit of equality stands as a guiding beacon of the best of American values. In leading the cause of equality for Black citizens of this country, he set an example for all Americans to strive for as we define the principles of liberty and democracy.
His heroism, leading a coalition of citizens to rally together for the rights of Black Americans echoes to this day as we continue to struggle with the issues of underrepresentation and systemic racism.
The cause of universal liberty is the defining characteristic of American Democracy, and MLK Jr.’s dream in which his, “four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”, is something we must all work together to realize.
These values have influenced us as individuals and continue to guide the way we operate as a brand. Today we are reflecting on MLK’s legacy and the guiding principles his life stood for.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
This week, we are donating a portion of proceeds from all online sales to help provide funding to the Black Resilience Fund whose work provides immediate resources to Black Portlanders.
