Jeni Britton Bauer Wants Businesses To Drop The NRA, And She’s Using Her Ice Cream Empire To Help

Jeni Britton Bauer, the creative genius behind Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, wants businesses to reconsider their affiliation with the National Rifle Association.

The social and political conversations about gun laws in the US have changed drastically since a Valentine’s Day attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. In a large part, that change in conversation is thanks to the students of the school, the teenaged survivors who have decided that they expect real change to happen, and they’re willing to fight for it.

Fighting ride alongside the students you’ll find Americans from all backgrounds. Here in Columbus, one of the loudest voices has been Jeni Britton Bauer.

Although she’s taking some backlash, Jeni, along with the majority of Americans, wants to effect real, lasting change in this country’s gun laws. As a prominent business owner, she is using her voice to encourage companies to stop their affiliations with the NRA.

After a list was recently released naming companies who have begun to sever ties with the organization, Jeni was seemingly disappointed not to see FedEx on the list. So she decided to reach out to them, show that unless they make changes, she would be willing to take her business elsewhere.

Most people were pretty happy to see her standing up for her beliefs.
