Hoodies for Change

All profits will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

About Us

Our mission is to raise money through our products and to donate to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). We also hope to raise awareness about the issue of racial profiling and police brutality. Although we recognize that we will never truly understand what it is like to grow up black in the United States, we created this website to support those whose voices are often suppressed. All profits will be donated to the ACLU, who strive to create an equal and just nation. In this website we have provided a list of resources such as movies, books, podcasts, and more to educate about the history of racism and civil liberties in America.
