Why These Brands Are Donating to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and More

Adrianna Barrionuevo

You can't deny that this past election has brought together fashion and politics like never before: Designers made specialty T-shirts, Vogue endorsed a presidential candidate for the first time, and celebs spoke out with their sartorial style. So when November 8 (and the early hours of November 9) came and went and the nation was left divided, many in the fashion industry—designers and consumers alike—decided to not only show solidarity but also put their money where their values were.

In that spirit, fashion brands are making an effort to increase awareness by donating proceeds from their sales to organizations that could be affected by this new chapter in American politics. Digital magazine Sight Unseen catapulted the movement for brands like Catbird and Wwake with its Design for Progress movement, aimed at raising funds for programs like Planned Parenthood, the Movement for Black Lives, the National LGBTQ Task Force, and the National Immigration Law Center, to name a few. Other brands, like Kaelen and The Outrage, are taking their activism to the next level by donating 100% of sales to organizations that could use the support. Either way, it's great to see the fashion industry stand up for what matters to consumers beyond clothes and accessories.
