We launched the Donald Eres Un Pendejo campaign in July of 2015 to give a voice to and unify the community that is in opposition to Donald Trump’s racist, sexist, dangerous statements.
In 2013, when we launched the Ilegal music series in New York, we wanted to create the same community & environment that Café No Sé, the birthplace of Ilegal, had provided to so many musicians. The series has since expanded to several iconic locations across the USA including the surf lodge (Montauk) and Harvard & Stone (LA). as a result Ilegal mezcal and it’s team have become fixtures in the live music scene and been a part of launching several bands careers.
In 2018 we launched Ilegal’s Love Your Neighbor platform. We believe that at the door of your business your values should be exemplified and defended. We are too keenly aware of the issues of climate change, immigration, the refugee crisis, gender discrimination, racism and xenophobia. These issues impact us, our friends, and our relatives.
Since the company began we have supported and contributed to a number of groups working to affect social change for the better and in 2019 we have raised over $60,000 for several groups with your help.
