To support all those in this fight, Biossance is pledging $100,000 to the ACLU, the Minnesota Freedom Fund, Color of Change, and Black Lives Matter.
You can take a stand today by listening, learning and making your voice heard. If we don’t engage, things won’t change. It’s up to each one of us to be heard and to resolve to do better.
Take that first step…keep scrolling for resources, recommendations, and other ways that you can get involved today. Be a voice for change, because this change can’t come soon enough.
