Dear friends and family,

We could have easily donated 40% of your purchase to nonprofit organizations doing imperative work for the Black community as the nation looks towards reformation, reparations, and social justice. However, as a society we have much learning, and unlearning, to do. And in order for us to do this, we need to take initiative and exercise our own agencies within our own consciousness. As an emerging label focusing on sustainability and ethics from the first day we came into concept, we always hoped that our message of fair treatment for all and ethical practices would resonate with consumers. That treatment is something we hope can be upheld for Black Americans. And for that reason, we stand in solidarity during a time in our history that will define who we are.

Below is a living document, an open source, compilation of resources from peers, friends, and verified publications. Please treat this for what it is, a resource, and please take the time to do your own research. Equip yourself with knowledge, it’s out there. Please email us at info@behno.com for any changes, additions, or thoughts. We’re here to make and give space, but we need to do it together, with you.

With much love,
Shivam, Founder
