Black Lives Matter - June 17, 2020 Updates
It’s been a few days since we shared our statement in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We know that change needs to happen from the inside out, so we’ll be sharing what Milk Bar is doing with you here.
As of today:
- Milk Bar has made a donation to Campaign Zero, an organization working to end police brutality in America with research based policy solutions. To learn more about Campaign Zero, visit www.joincampaignzero.org
- We’ve implemented a function on our website that allows customers to add a donation to Black Lives Matter and/or The Innocence Project to their carts while they shop.
- Any employee of Milk Bar can take 8 hours of additional paid time off to vote, register to vote, canvass, or volunteer in a campaign. We will be modifying our store, kitchen, and office hours on election days. We want to empower our team to exercise their right to vote, and make it easier for them to do so.
- We have established The Milk Bar Legal Support Initiative, dedicated to providing Milk Bar team members with resources, legal aid connections, and help with legal fees associated with arrests made during peaceful protesting.
Much more from us soon. Thank you all for your support along the way!
