Our May artist Kristina Micotti has been generous enough to make her iconic "UNITED NOT DIVIDED" and "BLACK LIVES MATTER" illustrations available for free download for all your BLM protesting needs! In lieu of payment, please consider donating to NAACP Legal Defense Fund, NAACP, Black Lives Matter, The Bail Project, ACLU, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, or GLITS Inc. Feel free to repost and share these images, too! Just be sure to tag the artist (@KristinaMicotti) and do not alter the artwork in any way.
And remember - this is not just a moment, this is a MOVEMENT! Keep sharing, creating, donating, protesting, voting, educating... keep spreading the love and fighting for what's right! We at Recess, Spoke Art, and Hashimoto Contemporary are committed to honoring BIPOC artists and creators, to keeping this important movement going, and to integrating fundraising efforts into our regular programming - not just now but long-term.
Take care of yourselves and each other! Sending you all love and strength, from your friends here at Recess SF.
And thank you to Kristina for all her hard work on her BLM fundraiser print this month! Her red "Black Panther" print raised over $5,000 for several BLM-related organizations in less than one week. Although this print is currently sold out, keep your eyes peeled for other fundraising products!
