Via The Hill:
Ben & Jerry’s is unveiling a new, policing and public safety-inspired ice cream flavor: Change is Brewing.
The flavor, revealed Monday at an event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., was created in support of legislation that Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) introduced in June, the People’s Response Act.
Bush, who was on hand as the latest ice cream offering made its debut, has said her bill would establish a public safety division within the Department of Health & Human Services for a “health-centered approach” to public safety.
Bush said she was “still stunned to be able to do this” as she spoke about the legislation that inspired the launch of the coffee-filled ice cream flavor.
“When Black people call for help in St. Louis, and in other places around this country, we too often don’t receive a just response,” Bush said, touting the People’s Response Act.
