I am extremely honored to work with the American Civil Liberties Union. Here in Northern California and all across the US, the ACLU has helped regular everyday people who dont have million dollar lawyers to fight back against people and institutions who infringe or violate their rights. Their work has involved gender, race, hate crimes, police brutality, issues of privacy, and racial profiling. This particular project was brought to my attention by media strategist Catrina Chaos and designer Gigi Pandian.
This specific poster illustration was used as a way to engage activists at a conference focusing on ways to protect the rights of people caught up or wrongfully held in the criminal justice system! Please check out the ACLU for more information about their work. Check out some of the process.
