La Colombe’s Equity Council
We formed our internal Equity Council to amplify, organize, and activate La Colombe’s internal and external efforts to promote social justice and dismantle the causes of inequality and racism.
We are committed to the protection and empowerment of Black lives across our communities. We released a special-edition of our Lyon coffee the ACLU’s efforts to fight racial injustice across the country. As a company, we’re dedicated to raising our voices to stop violence and police brutality against the Black community.
LIFTING WOMEN UP
We believe in the advancement and equality of women. In honor of Women’s History Month in 2020, we released two coffees benefiting the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project which pushes for change and systemic reform in institutions that perpetuate discrimination against women, focusing its work in the areas of employment, violence against women, and education.
We honor the history of the Pride movement and are committed to lending our voice to equal rights and treatment of LGBTQ+ people. During Pride Month in 2019, we commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising through special cups at our cafes across the country, designed by Todd Snyder as an extension of their #TSPride campaign. We’re excited to find meaningful ways to contribute to LGBTQ+ Pride, both inside and outside Pride Month.
