BLANX, a brand already committed to showing what matters and social impact, knew we had to tell the stories of what it means to be black in America. That’s why we joined together with creators to launch I MATTER.  With I MATTER, we are celebrating the voices of our creators and giving a blank canvas to black individuals to declare “I matter”. Let’s celebrate what should be visible, what matters.
