Plus, to celebrate Pride Month 2020, we also donated $50,000 to GSA Network, an LGBTQ+ organization that unites trans and queer youth for racial and gender justice.
To celebrate the black voices, artists, thinkers and trailblazers that shape every generation, we’ve partnered with some of the best creative minds as part of Black History Month. In 2020, we partnered with four Black artists to showcase their creative work. Artists Rewina Beshue, Chris Martin, Sydney James and Tony Whlgn created exclusive artwork that was released as part of our Customs range.
To help push culture forward and pave the way for generations to come, we also donated $40,000 USD to the Black Art Futures Fund. This charity amplifies and strengthens the future of black art by funding small and community-based organisations across the country. Plus, thanks to our Vans Family members, we reached our goal of five million points and donated an additional $25,000.
By showcasing minority voices and uplifting their creative work, we aim to celebrate and promote the message of unity and equality, not just for today but for the future too.
