Ben & Jerry’s launches “Art for Justice” to showcase need for reform

Local News

WATERBURY, Vt. – There’s a new art exhibit open at the Ben & Jerry’s factory to advocate for criminal justice reform.

The “Art for Justice” exhibit features photographs and drawings by artists who were once incarcerated.

The company hopes this exhibit will get their 400,000 yearly visitors to talk about this social issue.

“If we can make it easier to talk about these complex issues over a scoop of ice cream, then that’s what we believe is our magic as a company,” said Jabari Paul, Assistant U.S. Activism Manager for Ben & Jerry’s.

The exhibit will be open for factory visitors to check out all summer long.
