The unwarranted murders of Breyonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and George Floyd sparked civil unrest around the nation and abroad. As details, videos, and additional context started to surface, we felt like Corporate Smokers needed to get involved.
On the first day of the Atlanta Protests, we purchased cases of water, juice, chips, snacks, masks, and gloves and took them to Centennial Olympic Park for protestors. Our friends, Olivia and Jess, met me there and we were able to engage about 250 people through our efforts.
Our social media family loved the initiative and donated $420 to purchase more supplies for the following weekend. We attended the second weekend of protests armed with more supplies. Special thanks to Olivia, Jess, Cabrik, Natalie, Jasmine, and Krystal for coming to support!
Through a collective effort, we were able to support protests at Centennial Olympic Park (2x) and The King Center- thanks to everyone who donated!
