12 Angry Lips
We’ve been here before: another unarmed black man killed at the hands of law enforcement. This time an arrest, but only one*, and only after days of pent-up rage exploding in the streets.
And after 400 years of injustice:
Only a few weeks prior, trapped at home by COVID, I’d stumbled upon fiber artist Yrúrarí’s fanciful work reclaiming old sweaters with audacious red lips sprouting out from everywhere and pointed tongues snaking beyond imagination. I’d bought her pattern, ordered yarn, and gotten to work.
As crisis erupted upon crisis, knitting became a way to cope, but it wasn’t helping the problem.
Until now: 12 Angry Lips
For every donation of $50 or more to the
NAACP Legal Defense Fund:
Southern Poverty Law Center:
other social justice organization
Democratic candidate or organization supporting the election of Democratic candidates
I'll send one to you (one, not 12, just to be clear--that's just the name of the initiative).
Fill out this form first, then I’ll contact you to confirm that I still have lips for you. I may have to charge a small amount for postage for international orders to defray costs, but I will let you know what it would be when I e-mail you.
Once I e-mail you, respond with your donation receipt, and I’ll send out your lips!
TO YOUR SAFE SENDERS LIST SO I CAN CONTACT YOU.
*As of the start of this fundraiser.
