“Until these arrive, we’ve heard you want to show your support, so just be you. Wear your BLM pin or t-shirt,” Starbucks also said. “We are so proud of your passionate support of our common humanity. We trust you to do what’s right while never forgetting Starbucks is a welcoming third place where all are treated with dignity and respect.”
The Black Lives Matter movement has regained national prominence in recent weeks following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which sparked nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice.
