Black Lives Matter to Clearweather
Otosan means Father in the Japanese language. As father’s, we have a huge responsibility to teach the next generation that Hate, Oppression, And Civil
Injustice are wrong. Change must come now. We, here, at Clearweather understand that we have a civic duty in order to oppose hundreds of years of systemic oppression that affect our friends, family, and customers. This is just the first step in a major revolution in the United States. Clearweather will continue to support Black Americans and other minorities in the United States through continued awareness and initiatives.
This week we will be giving 100% of the profit from these
three colorways of The Otosan to Equal Justice Initiative.
Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer. EJI is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. They challenge the death penalty and excessive punishment and they provide re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.
EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. They are committed to changing the narrative about race in America. EJI produces groundbreaking reports, an award-winning wall calendar, and short films that explore our nation’s history of racial injustice, and they recently launched an ambitious national effort to create new spaces, markers, and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, which shapes many issues today.
