Article One x Nikki Hiltz

The next step in our partnership with Nikki Hiltz is a Pride Month campaign to raise funding and awareness for Stand with Trans, a Michigan based nonprofit whose mission is to empower transgender youth and their loved ones. During the month of June, we'll be donating 100% of profits from the sales of the Avalon sunglasses to Stand with Trans.

A Word from Nikki

“With hundreds of anti-trans bills being introduced and passed across the US, the work Stand with Trans is doing is critically important for the LGBTQ+ community. As a trans non-binary professional athlete I’ve been lucky and privileged to have an incredible support system – an experience I hope for every trans person. Through ally parents and fighting anti-trans legislation, I’ve always believed we all have a role to play in making the world a better and safer place for all people.”

Our Partnership

Our hope with this campaign is that advocates and organizations fighting for the rights of the LGBTQ community feel emboldened to continue persevering. Beyond supporting in a financial capacity, we want to recognize the changemakers who are providing life-saving resources, inspiring hope, and affecting meaningful change in the legislative landscape. From Nikki’s courage on and off the track to Stand with Trans’ tireless, compassionate efforts, our goal is to continually elevate and empower these champions through our platform, channels, and audiences.
