Footwear and clothing company Reebok says it is making a stand for human rights and the brand held a launch celebration in Brooklyn on Friday. 
Reebok's celebration included dancing and people expressing their artistic talent. It was all to mark the launch of the Reebok Human Rights Now Capsule. 
The launch of the new clothing line looks to celebrate all people and their rights, especially those in the Black and brown communities. 
It comes amid the coronavirus pandemic and after the widespread protests of last year, which brought the importance of young activism to the forefront of this year's line. 
Clothes and shoes feature original graphics from the 1988 Human Rights Now world tour. 
This year, Reebok also brought back its human rights awards - an effort it started 14 years ago that focuses on young activists ending systemic racism. 
Organizers say they hope to continue with these awards each year moving forward, focusing on young activists ending systemic racism.
