Bakers Against Racism

Logo that says

Started by Washington, D.C. chefs Paola Velez of Kith/Kin, Willa Pelini of Emilie’s, and Rob Rubba of Oyster Oyster, Bakers Against Racism is a worldwide virtual bake sale campaign to raise money for Black Lives Matter and other organizations fighting for justice.

Thousands of bakers are participating across the world, and they've begun sharing details and taking orders today (6/15) using the hashtag #bakersagainstracism, and will coordinate their own socially-distanced pickups, deliveries and shipments through this Saturday, 6/20. Afterward, participants are encouraged to share how much they raised and for which organizations.

We're proud to see so many of our USHG team members participating; see below for more on what they're baking and how you can support.
