My heart is broken for the unjust and unfair treatment of our black community, family, and friends. We are at a turning point that demands change and our collective action. As many of us are learning what we can do, I was inspired to see Brother Vellies Founder Aurora James launch the 15% Pledge. Our black community makes up 15% of the population, and the petition calls on retailers to dedicate 15% of their shelf space to black-owned businesses. Aurora hatched the idea last week and already launched a non-profit and is in talks with retail partners.
