From their website:
Together, Pecan Resist!
Alongside all those nutty chunks, this pint packs a powerful message under its lid: together, we can build a more just and equitable tomorrow. We can peacefully resist the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies and build a future that values inclusivity, equality, and justice for people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, refugees, and immigrants. Pecan Resist supports four organizations that are working on the front lines of the peaceful resistance, building a world that supports their values. Get to know them, then find Pecan Resist here!
Given this honors Linda Sarsour and her band of fellow anti-zionists-not-antisemites, this leaves a sour taste in my mouth and presumably others who oppose hatred and antisemitism.
With that in mind, here are are some ideas for other Ben & Jerry’s flavors:
