"This is a Movement Not a Moment" is an illustration created by artist Natasha Powell Walker that represents the collective violence, systemic racism, and oppression against Black people in the United States of America. As a country, it is our duty to acknowledge, educate, and work to eliminate the racial inequities that exist in America. Walker recognizes the "movement" is a lifetime of work by Black Americans and their legacy must be honored by continuing to do the work.
Trophy Brewing Company will donate a portion of the sale of this beer to Emancipate NC. "Through community education, narrative shift, and idea incubation, Emancipate NC supports North Carolina’s people as they free themselves from mass incarceration and structural racism."
Trophy Brewing Company believes in helping to make change through Allyship. Allyship is a lifelong process focused on building trust, emphasizing social justice, inclusion, and human rights by members of an ingroup, to advance the interests of an oppressed or marginalized outgroup. Allyship is part of the anti-oppression or anti-racist conversation, which puts into use social justice theories and ideals. To find out more information on what it means to be an Ally, click here.
