On January 27, 2021, Logos president Helio Fred Garcia was quoted in a CNN Business article on the ice-cream company Ben & Jerry’s campaign to end qualified immunity for police officers. Ben & Jerry’s has long supported progressive political causes, which Garcia points out makes their decision to take such a direct stance on this issue unsurprising.
“Conglomerates typically try to stay off the radar screen on divisive social issues,” Garcia explained. “There’s no surprise that the Ben & Jerry’s brand is involved. What is intriguing is that their parent Unilever seems to be perfectly comfortable with that.”
