Juneteenth + BLM Collection
Jun 19, 2020
With everything going on with the world right now, it's clear that we are long overdue for change. Every contribution matters and we at UPRISERS have taken some time to act, reflect, and continue to speak loudly, while focusing our efforts with our members at #HATEISAVIRUS. Our first goal is to educate AAPIs on history so that we can better inform and equip ourselves to best support our fellow black communities. In reaching our first goal, we wanted to highlight several local Black-led small businesses that you can visit online and in-store today.
Black-Owned Small Businesses to Support
UPRISERS Stand with BLM
Our second goal we want to achieve is supporting Black organizations in the creative and LGBTQ+ community through donations from our sales. In our BLM collection, we are giving back 100% of proceeds from purchases made in our Asia Jackson, MILCK, and UPRISERS collections.
Organizations We Are Giving Back To
In partnership with our friends at Neko and Inu, the first 100 orders from our UPRISERS Stand with BLM Collection will receive a facemask.
