Ben & Jerry’s announced a new ice cream flavor, called “Change is Brewing,” whose proceeds the company says will support the “defund the police” movement by supplementing Rep. Cori Bush’s (D-MO) $10 billion anti-police bill that would replace cops with social workers.
“Change is Brewing! Grab your spoon & dig into a flavor boldly celebrating safety & liberation for all,” the company said on its website. “It’s time to divest from systems that criminalize Black communities & invest in a vision of public safety that allows everyone to breathe free.”
The flavor, unveiled Monday, is a mix of cold-brew coffee ice cream, marshmallow swirls and fudge brownies.
