For those of you who do not know me, I have been fairly vocal in my criticism of our new administration. This is nothing new for me. There is enough of a history of dissent in my family that I can honestly say I am not just jumping on the bandwagon.
As an artist, mine has been a quiet voice of support. Supporting the family of women that raised me and the women I raised. Women who didn’t always have the luxury of choosing their battles, but always stepped up and took care of business. I choose to tell their stories and in doing so, honor their lives.
Now, it’s time to do my part as a member of this family of women, with my voice.
Choose your voice and RESIST hate, xenophobia, homophobia, lies, discrimination, racism, and most of all ignorance.
RESIST and SUPPORT.
I have partnered with my cousin, who is a small business owner in San Diego, CA , and his partner to contribute to the cause by using my voice. I created this design at 3:00 a.m., unable to sleep and feeling like I was letting down my mom, grandmother, great grandmother and great aunts who fought so hard for their families with wit, imagination, intelligence and resilience. As always, my trusted Sharpie led me to some inspiration and a little respite from feeling like I was not doing enough.
If you purchase a t-shirt, you will be supporting a small business, an independent artist and a movement for all.
I am also pledging to donate 10% of my portion of the profits of all sales during this month to Planned Parenthood. I will do the same for a different organization each month.
Lanfrez also has more than my designs available and your support will help them continue to spread the word.
RESIST and SUPPORT.
Thank you, love to all. Patty Eljaiek
