Ice Cream maker Ben & Jerry’s has joined forces w/ Former football star & social activist Colin Kaepernick on a vegan ice cream flavor dubbed “Change the Whirled,” that celebrates Kaepernick’s courageous work to confront systemic oppression and to stop police violence against Black and Brown people.
Ben & Jerry’s believes Kaepernick represents the very best of us, willing to use his power and platform in the pursuit of equity and justice rooted in a commitment to love and resistance. The ice cream maker aims to honor Kaepernick, sweetening the long struggle for justice, and making his vision a reality to Change the Whirled.
Kaepernick’s portion of the proceeds from sales of Change the Whirled will support the work of Know Your Rights Camp. Kaepernick founded Know Your Rights Camp in Oakland, CA in 2016 to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities.
