Gallery Pastry Shop Contributes To The Fight For Black Trans People With Merchandise Sales

Over the last few weeks the team at Gallery Pastry Shop has been outraged, saddened, and humbled by the black lives that are lost due to racism, systemic oppression, and white supremacy. Some of us have made our voices heard during protests, but all of us have listened to the voices that are protesting and demanding change. After much reflection, we have decided on how we can take action to dismantle the systemic racism that we know exists in our industry. We have the responsibility to fight against these injustices, and it is inappropriate to stay silent any longer. Gallery Pastry Shop and Gallery Pastry Bar are committed to paying people fairly and offering a safe place for everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, creed, or religious affiliation. This, of course, is just a baseline. We are also committed to re-examining our practices on a regular basis to ensure we are actively engaged in celebrating and increasing diversity in our restaurants as long as we continue to operate and grow in this community.  Our team has decided that we will be donating ALL proceeds from our PRIDE hoodies to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute (MPJI) over the course of the next month. The MPJI protects and defends the rights of black trans people. Our goal is to support a cause that the team at Gallery Pastry Shop and Gallery Pastry Bar believes will help during this time. It isn’t perfect, but we are all capable of doing something. Please know that we will continue to do our part as our community is mourning, healing, and growing. 📸: @miiikaelajordan
