Yes Pecan! and Common Cause

by Sebastian Benthall

Just got an email from one of my favorite advocacy organizations, Common Cause. Here’s the news:

For the month of January, Ben & Jerry’s is renaming its butter pecan ice cream flavor to “Yes Pecan!” and donating a portion of the proceeds from scoop shop sales of the new flavor to the Common Cause Education Fund!

We’re honored to be working with Ben & Jerry’s to celebrate the spirit of activism and the newfound optimism that government can work for the common good.

Common Cause, in case you aren’t familiar with it, is a great organization which stands for participatory politics, fair elections, and open and ethical government, and responsive media.

Ben & Jerry’s, in case you aren’t familiar with it, is a great organization that stands for delicious ice cream.

Nothing but good can come out of this alliance.
