Ice cream cone

Hialy Gutierrez and JUSTice Cream

JUSTice Cream is a mutual aid vegan ice cream shop that donates 100% of profits to fund grassroots social justice work. Each flavor reflects a social issue and is tied to a community-based organization. Ingredients are plant-based and ethically sourced, to optimize environmental sustainability and promote fair labor practices. Ice cream will be distributed through pop ups and small/co-op markets to support small businesses, and shipping will be available depending on funding. JUSTice Cream is womxn-of-color-run, but community driven/owned.
