TikTok Says the Trump Administration has Forgotten about Trying to Ban it, Would Like to Know What’s Up (The Verge)

Peloton Taps Beyoncé for Multi-Year Partnership (AdAge)

The goals of this collaboration are aligned with the brand’s “Peloton Pledge” to donate in support of the fight against racial injustice. A campaign that offers something for both the customer and a cause is a smart and practical response to the shifting brand purpose culture.
