GIVING BACK

Throughout time, plaid has connected folks through cultural values, community, clan, family and tribe.

We understand the power of these intersections of color and line and its ability to not only conjure meaning and story but to represent something so important to us all, community.

Below are examples where we put this tool to task and not only strengthened this community’s ties but also worked together to raise money and awareness for causes that mean so much.

This is a time in our history where issues are finally coming to the surface. Hidden injustices, mistreatments, carelessness that we no longer have the privilege to ignore.

We are proud to be a part of this time in history with you.

Human justice, environmental protection and just generally doing things better are not only integral to how we operate JCRT but outwardly how we want our ideals reflected in the world we live in.

Thank you for being a huge part in this journey. #sleevesup

RAISING MONEY FOR BLACK LIVES MATTER. WE CREATED THE RED, BLACK AND GREEN PLAID INSPIRED BY THE MARCUS GARVEY DESIGNED FLAG. A SYMBOL THAT REPRESENTS BLACK FREEDOM AND LIBERATION, THESE PAN-AFRICAN COLORS STAND FOR BLOOD, GROWTH AND PEOPLE. THE POWER OF THESE COLORS RESONATE TODAY. BLACK LIVES MATTER. ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE MOVEMENT FOR BLACK LIVES. WE HAVE DONATED ALL PROCEEDS FROM FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND TO BLACK LIVES MATTER TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FAMILIES THAT DO NOT HAVE THE PRIVLEDGE TO CELEBRATE THIS HOLIDAY. FOR THE FATHERS, THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS THAT HAVE BEEN LOST TO VIOLENCE AND INJUSTICE.

WE RAISED OVER $10,000 FOR THE STONEWALL GIVES BACK INITIATIVE. WE DEVELOPED THE FIRST OF OUR PRIDE PLAIDS INSPIRED AND CELEBRATING THE ENTIRE PRIDE FLAG IN ORDER TO SHOWCASE THE RICH, FULL DIVERSITY OF OUR COMMUNITY. HAVING HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING FOR CRAIG RODWELL AT HIS OSCAR WILDE BOOKSHOP A FEW DOORS DOWN FROM STONEWALL ITSELF. I LEARNED JUST HOW IMPORTANT STONEWALL IS TO OUR HISTORY.

THANK YOU MARSHA, SILVIA, CRAIG AND… ALL THE OTHER BRAVE SOULS.
