Get It Together, KY

By KY for KY Store Admin |

Here at Kentucky for Kentucky, we're trying to do right by Kentuckians. 2020 showed up the time to speak up and speak out about racial injustice and our own state was front and center of this conversation and the Black Lives Matter movement with Breonna Taylor's murder in Louisville in May. Turns out, of course, that 2021 is still the time to speak up and speak out about racial injustice. Turns out, of course, there's never a time to stay silent. 

Since the beginning of June 2020, we've been honored to be part of several projects that have been born out of the fight for racial justice, with the hope of supporting and encouraging social and economic change in Kentucky's Black communities. 

 

NERD SQUAD Inc and Black Males Working Academy

Raised to Date: $3,971.52

100% Black women led. Samantha Johnson of SamanhattanPR and Danielle Meadows-Stinnett of Octane Design Studios initiated and designed these tees with insight from their community of Black creatives. Samantha and Danielle are pictured up front in the photo above.

100% net proceeds from this tee were donated to Black-led organizations nurturing the individuality and curiosity of Black young women and young men. Proceeds will be split evenly between NERD SQUAD Inc (STEM for Black girls and young women) and Black Males Working Academy (academic preparation for Black young men).

Hood to the Holler

Raised to Date: $4,972.95

We've encouraged voting for years and wanted to make a t-shirt as part of the effort because we knew 2020 would be a big one. We also made a video! We didn't want to profit off this one and it was obvious to us where funds should go. We gave 100% net proceeds from this tee to Hood To The Holler, an organization newly formed by Charles Booker with the “aim of building broad coalitions, breaking down barriers of race and class, and fueling a people centered movement to build political power and transform our future.”

BLM Louisville and the Louisville Community Bail Fund

Raised to Date: $10,174.52

Rex Chapman and Dave Helmers headed up this project with Rex's Block or Charge following. 100% net proceeds from these tees went to BLM Louisville, Kentucky's primary Black Lives Matter chapter, and Louisville Community Bail Fund, which is used to bail out peaceful protestors and provides post-release support.
