Ben and Jerry stopped by the Pitchfork Economics podcast to discuss qualified immunity. Particularly, how they’re fighting to repeal the doctrine that shields bad cops from liability. On the podcast, the duo talk about how, as business leaders, they use their resources to call for meaningful change.
And one of the meaningful changes Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield are calling for is an end to qualified immunity.
As host Nick Hanauer notes, Ben and Jerry are “icons in the world of business with a purpose.” In the episode, the co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream talk about the ways in which business can be a force for good in the world. Over the years, Ben and Jerry have used their platform to speak out on causes they care about. These causes include police reform and accountability.
“Most recently, Pitchfork Economics says, “they are the leaders of the Campaign to End Qualified Immunity, a new police reform and criminal justice campaign.”
