Ben and Jerry support HB 4, continuing their national advocacy for ending the legal doctrine of qualified immunity.
“Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield found fame by making ice cream. Now their interest is in making law, nationally and in New Mexico.”
In his cheekily titled column “Cherry Garcia creators have no taste for qualified immunity,” journalist Milan Simonich of The Santa Fe New Mexican writes about how Ben and Jerry support HB 4. The article highlights the recent AFP-NM press conference on the bill aimed at ending qualified immunity in New Mexico.
“As businesspeople, we know that first and foremost accountability is the key to achieving desired results,” [Jerry] said. “Qualified immunity is a fundamentally unfair and unjust policy.”
