At Ben & Jerry’s, we’re honored that our fans support the activism and advocacy we engage in, which is rooted in our company’s core values. We want to let our fans know that we’ve also heard from some who’ve been disappointed by our company’s partnership with the Women’s March. There have been charges of anti-Semitism leveled at the Women’s March’s leaders, and by association, at us.
We want to address these claims in no uncertain terms and in the clearest language possible, Ben & Jerry’s is neither anti-Semitic nor do we support anti-Semitism in any form.
We understand that for many, these words may feel a bit out of the blue. However, we felt it important in light of some recent misplaced charges to the contrary, that we come out and say it. For 40 years we have stood against all forms of discrimination and bigotry including racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, misogyny, homophobia and transphobia. Our company and its employees remain deeply committed to these values.
