BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Ben and Jerry's has joined the Black Lives Matter movement.

The ice cream company posted a statement signed by the founders Friday on its website. The company's tweet was retweeted nearly 40,000 times and liked more than 53,000 times.

"They matter because they are children, brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers," the statement opens. "They matter because the injustices they face steal from all of us -- white people and people of color alike. They steal our very humanity."
