WHAT IS #RECLAIMBLACKFRIDAY AND THE REDISTRIBUTION PLEDGE?#ReclaimBlackFriday is a call to action for redistributing wealth to those who have suffered the most because of historic and continual exploitation in America. Instead of offering sales or markdowns this Thanksgiving, we will be redistributing 10% of our total sales from November 26th to 29th to
DIGDEEP Navajo Water Project, Amah Mutsun Land Trust, and Black Farmer Fund, in addition to donating 100% of the proceeds from this community fundraiser.
DIGDEEP NAVAJO WATER PROJECT
More than 40% of Navajo families don’t have clean, running water, right here in the United States. DIGDEEP is working across the Navajo Nation, where families living below the poverty line are forced to buy expensive bottled water or haul dirty water from ponds and livestock throughs up to 50 miles away. They're developing new water sources, outfitting delivery trucks, and installing hot and cold running water in homes - making people happier, healthier and more equal. Because no American should struggle to live without clean, running water.
AMAH MUTSUN LAND TRUST
The Amah Mutsun Land Trust (AMLT), an initiative of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, is the vehicle by which the Amah Mutsun access, protect, and steward lands that are integral to their identity and culture. The AMLT returns its tribe to their ancestral lands and restores their role as environmental stewards. Due to their difficult history and generations of physical, mental, and political abuses, their land stewardship practices were disrupted, and much of their culture was lost. AMLT serves not only in the re-learning of their history and restoration of indigenous management practices, it also serves as a vehicle for healing. By restoring their traditional ecological knowledge and revitalizing their relationship to Mother Earth, they also restore balance and harmony to the lands of their ancestors.
BLACK FARMER FUND
The mission of Black Farmer Fund is to create a thriving, resilient, and equitable food system by investing in black food systems entrepreneurs and communities in New York. The Black Farmer Fund also serves as a bridge for black communities to participate in creating a food system that benefits those within and outside of black communities. They are defining wealth beyond financial and intellectual capital to include social capital and ancestral wisdom, to mitigate against climate change, exercise governance, strengthen solidarity, and preserve cultural and ancestral ways of being.

Why is Bryr participating in this campaign?
As a business that has benefitted from intersectional privilege, we decided to participate in this campaign because we believe it is important to acknowledge our privilege and to hold space for healing and positive change in our community. Thanksgiving has traditionally been a time for coming together with friends and loved ones to celebrate gratitude. We believe it can also be a time to acknowledge the history of trauma in our country and to help heal our communities.
We believe it is important to honor the original stewards of the land on which our business operates, and address the heavy toll that capitalism has taken, especially on Indigenous and Black communities. We want to encourage you, our community, to support initiatives driven by communities whose ancestors had their lands stolen from them and who were stolen from their lands.

Thank you SO much for being here and for your support, whether that’s in the form of donations or spreading the word!!! It all helps
amplify the work and voices of Indigenous and Black leaders.
