Women in Politics
With women holding less than 20% of seats in US Congress, we knew it was important to support a more representative political system. We partnered with the nonpartisan organization She Should Run to help them reach their goal of getting 250K women to run for office by 2030. They provide community, resources, and growth opportunities for aspiring political leaders.
Stop Sexual Violence
As a brand rooted in women's empowerment and inspired by the #metoo movement of 2018, we knew we had to do our part to support the work of organizations like End Rape on Campus (EROC) on the frontlines of fighting sexual violence. EROC provides direct services to survivors of sexual violence, trains and develops resources for those on colleague campuses to prevent sexual assault and support survivors, and advocates for fair and equitable sexual assault and interpersonal violence policies and legislation.
In honor of the women's march, we launched a bracelet with Planned Parenthood of NYC to support the critical funding gap the clinics face in providing all people – regardless of income – with preventative and sexual health services. Since launching, we've raised over $50K and we won't stop there. Join us in our vision of raising $100K this year.
We partnered with the UN Foundation's Girl Up campaign to help support the 62 million girls that are out of school around the world. Girls face barriers like violence, funding gaps, and social pressures that keep them from getting to schools. Girl Up is working to eliminate those bariers and empower all girls to change the world.
We started by investing in microloans in the developing world because poverty disproportionately affects single mothers. Widowed women are especially vulnerable as they face challenges like not being able to legally inherit their husband's land and often have little education. That's why we partnered with the Sisi Fund – a women's collaborative on the ground that teaches business, agriculture, and accounting to women in five villages, helping them build businesses and make a living.
Called to action by the urgent need to fight climate change and ensure a livable future for our planet, we created the Climate Cuff to ignite conversations and inspire individuals to take action. Made of upcycled brass, this cuff donates to organizations fighting for our planet by protecting ecosystems, advocating for legislation that limits air pollution, and supporting the transition to a clean energy economy.
