In this episode of Let’s Get Changed, we speak with Dr. Kimberly McGlonn, the founder and CEO of Grant Blvd whose mission is to construct stylish, sustainably sourced fashion by reducing waste to landfills and by creating living wage jobs for women, particularly those who are formerly incarcerated. We chat about Grant Blvd’s role in helping reimagine the fashion industry, but also her newest endeavor — Black Ivy vintage thrift, inspired by the Black Ivy Fashion Movement. We highlight her nonprofit partnerships focused on juveniles and women who have been in and out of the justice system, the role of music in reflecting the human experience while offering a way to inspire and protect optimism, her podcast ‘School for Disruptors,’ and so much more. This one’s action-packed.



In a word, Grant Blvd is a response to slavery, to leased labor, to Jim Crow, to persistent economic injustice and marginalization.
