Coup D’Etat or Coup “de Grace”?
The true home of Solidarity Wine
Given recent controversy about ORE wine industry’s unauthorized use of my federally trademarked “Solidarity”, I want to share its significance to our efforts. When I began this path, I knew the only word that embodied my aspirations for this social enterprise was “Solidarity.” It is a truly noble word, which empowers and unites, and has endured across many cultures and time because it represents the very best of human capacities.
While it is always important to speak out on behalf of those suffering injustice, the nobility of Solidarity arises from the compassion, empathy and heartfelt connection expressed while speaking out, and walking hand-in-hand, with those who do Not look like you.
It is precisely because “Immigrant, Transgender, Palestinian, Homeless”, etc are Not labels that I would use to symbolize my external identity, that I chose to support these efforts to restore dignity in our community. Our diversity is beautiful, and our absolute strength. We Are: One.
We’d Love to have you join us in our efforts. But we need your support now, more than ever… Please act.
