“The decision’s logic cannot be limited to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.” - Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
A few years ago, Luis and Hans left their home country of Guatemala for Austin, Texas, looking for their very own safe space. They found it in the United States and their outlook on life was forever changed. Ever since, they made it their mission to share the joy they have found; what started as a farmer's market stand flourished into a way to share their story and to listen to the stories of others. To date, their for-profit business, Wunderkeks has shipped over three million cookies and reached over two hundred thousand homes, all over America. Wunderkeks has seen some amazing successes from collaborating with Virgin Airlines, to sponsoring and winning the UN World Logic Day Award, to admittance into the prestigious SKU Accelerator.
However, with the recent Supreme Court Rulings around limiting service to LGTBQI customers and with facing their own challenges as founders around visa costs threatening their ability to call their Safe Space of Austin, TX home, Luis and Hans began feeling more needed to be done. Justice Sotomayor referred to the decision as a “Sad day in American constitutional law and the lives of LGBT people.” She suggested that decision would be more far-reaching. “The decision’s logic cannot be limited to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.” CNN Reports

In the words of Cara Delevigne at the 2019 UN NEXUS gathering in NYC, “If there is freedom to hate why the hell isn't there freedom to love.”
