This week Design Rebels, a socially conscious design class at VCU, is promoting tolerance in the Richmond community by distributing their coffee sleeves at two local coffee shops in RVA: Crossroads by VCU (26 N. Morris Street) and Crossroads on Forest Hill (3600 Forest Hill Ave – AKA Club Crossroads).
The series of sleeves (4 designs total) include a photo and quote from various members of the LGBT community. The goal is to encourage acceptance of and compassion towards the LGBT community. I hope you will visit these locations this week and pick up a sleeve. There is no place for prejudice, discrimination, and intolerance based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. I’m proud to support a more inclusive RVA. For more information visit the Design Rebel website at: http://vcudesignrebels.wordpress.com/.
