ISSUE: Civil Liberties

At Kenneth Cole we believe in equal rights and speaking up for minorities and other communities whose civil liberties are compromised or discriminated against. We have often fought controversial issues with controversial messages to raise awareness of injustices in the hope that the power of public opinion can find solutions to help and protect those in need. From Homeslessness to Gun Control to Gay Rights, you can rest assured that we’ll continue to fight for what we believe in (while we’re still at liberty to say what we think, that is).
