We are proud to introduce Pass The Spotlight – a Dolls Kill commitment to amplify voices of change and promote diversity & inclusion.

Pass The Spotlight is our commitment to amplify voices of change and promote diversity & inclusion. We’ve committed to buying $1 million of product to support and empower Black-owned business. Every quarter, we partner with these brands to showcase and sell their products on Dolls Kill, and we donate 100% of the profits from this program to community organizations of their choice.

These are the charities we’ve contributed to so far through Pass the Spotlight:

A Long Walk Home 

A Long Walk Home (ALWH) is a national art organization based in Chicago that empowers young people to end violence against girls and women. They are cultivating the next generation of leaders committed to gender equity and racial justice. Founded in 2003 by Salamishah Tillet and Scheherazade Tillet, ALWH works to elevate marginalized voices, facilitate healing, and activate social change. 

Clean Up South Central

Clean Up South Central is a non-profit catered to the betterment of our communities through street clean ups and community service. This non-profit was created in response to the lack of resources available to better the South Central community.

Stop AAPI Hate

Stop AAPI Hate tracks and responds to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Their approach recognizes that in order to effectively address anti-Asian racism, we must work to end all forms of structural racism leveled at Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.

The Association of Black Psychologists

The Association of Black Psychologists was founded in 1968 by Black psychologists from across the country who united to address the problems facing Black psychologists and the larger Black community. This group of psychologists aims to improve the mental health of the national Black community through programs, services, training, and advocacy.

The Black Sex Worker Collective

The Black Sex Worker Collective (BSWC) seeks to address the needs of current and former Black sex workers. They provide education, legal assistance, healthcare resources, and affordable housing referrals to aid Black sex workers in successfully leaving and maintaining a life outside of the industry. Their goal is to create a safe space where the unique experiences and needs of Black sex worker voices are validated and responded to with appropriate needs based resources.

Black Career Women’s Network

The Black Career Women’s Network is a national career development organization dedicated to fostering the professional growth of Black women. Founded in 2012, the BCWN bridges the gap for professional development and mentor access to help women strategically mange their careers, navigate the workplace and thrive professionally.
