The #BLAIRISMS and PeerForward Partner to Promote COVID-19 Safety and Educational Equity
The #BLAIRISMS, a leader in brand activism, has partnered with PeerForward, a national organization promoting equity in education, to protect and inspire young lives.
Through this strategic partnership, #BLAIRISMS will produce co-branded masks for PeerForward featuring the statement “Don’t Forget To Be Your Own Inspiration”. The words are meant to motivate students to recognize the amazing potential within themselves. Masks will be free and distributed to high school and college students during the 2020-2021 academic year.
“It’s exciting to partner with #BLAIRISMS as they truly understand the importance of leveling the playing field for historically marginalized communities. Many of their influential words help to reinforce the forward-thinking work of our young people at PeerForward.”
– Gary Z. Linnen, CEO, PeerForward
“#BLAIRISMS is both excited and honored to partner with PeerForward, an organization that has and continues to engage activism through changing lives and inspiring young people. Having my words find home with the PeerForward family is a full circle beyond my imagination.”
– Blair Dottin-Haley, CEO, The #BLAIRISMS
