Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? The NAACP Legal Defense Fund!
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund uses the power of the law to fight for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, the Legal Defense Fund seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. Most recently for them that includes work on police misconduct, redistricting, protecting, maintaining (and, god willing, advancing) Voting Rights, and—pure and simple—Truth.
At the current moment, that aspirational American promise, those "self-evident truths"—that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness—have once again become a proposition in need of defending. This is the defense that the NAACP Legal Defense Fund puts forward, here by law, so that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
We are pleased and proud to support this good work, this Giving Friday and always. If you don't need anything from us, consider donating to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund directly—now through December 31, 2021, donations will be triple matched up to 500k so now's a great time to give, both in terms of generosity and in acute need for actionable support.
If you DO find yourself in need of sweet gifts or fresh toys, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Fran for the stellar nomination!
