Fashion and beauty brands are joining in on the “Stop Hate for Profit” campaign.

Color of Change, the NAACP and other organizations launched the “Stop Hate for Profit” initiative last month to call on companies to pause their advertising with Facebook over its reluctance to address the spread of racist rhetoric across its social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram.

“For over five years, Color of Change has called on Facebook to do the right thing and make their platform safe for the millions of Black people that use it,” reads a statement on the organization’s web site. “From the monetization of hate speech to discrimination in their algorithms to the proliferation of voter suppression to the silencing of Black voices, Facebook has refused to take responsibility for hate, bias and discrimination growing on their platforms.”

Major brands joining the campaign include Adidas, REI, Puma, Patagonia and Unilever, which is extending its boycott through the end of 2020. Other smaller fashion and beauty businesses have also pledged their support, including CBD-based beauty brands Kush Queen and Sagely Naturals.

We answered the call of the @naacp, @colorofchange and other Civil Rights groups and joined @patagonia, @benandjerrys, @cocacola and others to boycott Facebook advertising for the month of July. While it will hurt our bottom-line much more than it will @facebook’s, the more advertisers that pull out – no matter how small – the louder our collective voice will be. Why pull our marketing dollars? For too long, @facebook & @zuck have allowed widespread hate speech, incitement to violence & blatant misinformation to run rampant on its platform. Enough is enough. It’s high time for a widespread reform of its guidelines and policies. Want to participate? 1) Urge brands you love to participate as well 2) Report hate speech anytime you see it on FB & IG #StopHateForProfit
