Fashion is political.
Fashion has always meant more than what is seen on the surface. And in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement, many are illustrating this point by using clothes and accessories to raise awareness for social justice causes. We've seen it on the news, in social media feeds, and even at the Emmy Awards. Indeed, brands and organizations have created merch that helps express these opinions loud and clear. Not only that, but they are also donating a percentage of or all their proceeds to initiatives that are leading the charge for political reform.
From face masks that support the ACLU to a sweater that helps Black communities build political power to a lipstick that lobbies for gun reform, we've rounded up items that are promoting social justice in more ways than one.
