When we created this project, we had three layers in mind: the individual wearing the shirt, the orgs making the shirts (us designing/distributing, as well as the printers and textile manufacturers), and the orgs the profits would support (initially, the ACLU and hues). Our goal was that all three layers would work symbiotically to enact justice.
We believe that individuals and organizations choose how they show up: you can show up for justice, or allow injustice to proliferate in your absence.
If you’ve marched, protested, or named yourself a member of the resistance, you’re in the right place.
We created this project to recognize several truths.
One, that every action we take, and every inaction we take, is political. Either it takes a step toward progress, or allows oppression push us back. This is the essence of our manifesto: you get to choose how you show up.
And a lot of us are showing up.
Many of us are mobilized, organizing, and working to resist Trump, Fascism, Racism, and other manifestations of oppression, but we struggle to bring these circles together — or to bring those actions into our daily lives. We put on our marching hat, then take it off when we go to work. This isolates us, and stymies our causes.
