The Power of Sanctuary
Promote Lincoln’s efforts to support programs and organizations with missions that shine a light or stand in the gap for the health inequities facing African American women
The first step in taking action is listening. In 2020, we created Lincoln Listens First a conversation series with Angela Rye and some of the brand’s closest allies, to discuss the issues facing the AA community during a volatile time of civil unrest and a worldwide pandemic. We followed up on those conversations, tapping into Angela Rye again and prominent leaders in the fight against health disparities in the Black community.
African American challenge seekers aspire to be more badass. They want to be free outdoors but often avoid risky behavior and experiences. Establish Bronco as an aspirational outdoor lifestyle brand and the ultimate guide to help people reconnect with and fully experience the wild.
We tapped into mutual interest and support organizations, Black Girls Run, Black Girls Do Bike and Outdoor Afro, to encourage black women to feel comfortable in exploring activities that defy long-held stereotypes. These organizations reassure them that they are not alone in their passions, inspiring the courage to adventure beyond the boundaries of the expectations of others.
