SUSS x SHOUT-OUTS
Shining a light on others that inspire us and make us feel good!
Sophia Chang @sophchangnyc @unlockherpotential
"Not just an OG music biz matriarch and the Baddest Bitch in the Room (her memoir), the incomparable Sophia Chang founded Unlock Her Potential, a mentorship program for women of color. Her energy and voice are both inspirational and aspirational and the roster of mentors is mind-boggling."
"I love this mask company! Their messaging, their fresh and relevant approach, and true commitment to the community inspires me. This company represents everything I stand for and choose to support."
Sam Moyer + Eddie Martinez www.moyermartinezfund.org
"Two of my favorite artists giving back to their community. The Moyer Martinez Fund donates 100% of all proceeds to a rotating set of non-profit organizations that support fellow New Yorkers. They are the best human beings."
THESE DAYS @thesedays.la
"Bookstores are one of my favorite things, and this is one of my top ten. They are 100% down for their community and their artists. Stephen and Jodi Zeigler are the coolest and have curated a perfect jewel box of a bookstore and art gallery in downtown LA. I am never, ever disappointed."
Compton Cowboys @comptoncowboys
"Streets Raised Us, Horses Saved Us" is their motto. 'A collective of lifelong friends on a mission to uplift their community through horseback and farming lifestyle, all the while highlighting the rich legacy of African-Americans in equine and western heritage.' When I need some motivation or solid inspo, I scroll through their IG account and feel instantly re-energized and my faith in humanity is restored."
