about the Numbers
Due to the nature of our product, there isn't a way to order a specific number to be stamped on to your pendant. Every pendant is unique (aren't YOU?), and we stamp the numbers along the edge of them in sequence.
The number that you receive will depend upon your order position. What we can tell you is that we've allocated the first 398 of them to people that we think should be given one: some of them are hard at work working for freedoms, and others are descendants of some who paved the way.
A few on our list:
Descendant of Thurgood Marshall
Activist Angela Davis
Rep John Lewis
Descendant of Harriet Tubman
Thomas Drake, NSA whistleblower
Jesse Jackson Sr.
Deborah Watts, cousin of Emmett Till and co-founder of Emmett Till Legacy Foundation
Tim White, dir of Assoc for White Anti-Racist Education
Anthony Romero, exec dir ACLU
Claudette Colvin, who at 15 years of age, refused to give up her seat on a bus 9 months before Rosa Parks did the same!
Descendant of Solomon Northup
Colin Kaerpernicki, outspoken quarterback for SF 49ers on issues of race
Francisco Balderrama, author Decade of Betrayal: Mexican Repatriation in the 1930s
Anthony Robinson, exonerated by the Innocence Project then went on to get a law degree and become admitted to the Supreme Court bar. Story HERE
Gloria Steinem, writer, political activist and feminist organizer
You get the point. We will be asking YOU for suggestions on who else should get one.
And then there's YOU!
Whether you're number 1209 or 1,528,193 we hope you'll see value in what this represents.
