If you've been around me for any length of time, you know I love a few words: enough, evolve, create...
It's honestly become one of my driving "philosophies" in life: equality for all. Equally human, equally divine, equally deserving of equal love and respect and compassion and... enough.
I try to create toward equality. I hope we're evolving toward equality. You get it...
Last year, after the election, we started Republic of Equal, an apparel company meant to push back a little on much of the negative language out there and push forward on... equality.
Then we shut it down. It had been a little rushed and we were a little busy.
Then 2017 came. Then more and more events happened and the negative language seemed to not only be sticking around but getting louder.
So, we spent about 3 months remodeling Republic of Equal. We tested out a variety of apparel, we tested out designs, with a variety of people, we revamped the website... we evolved.
I'm proud of what we now have. Sure it's just apparel, but it's apparel with messages that we need in this world. And we give away 50% of profits to a different organization every month fighting inequality in one way or another.
