Defund the Police, Refund the Teachers T-Shirt
So psyched to work with my friend Cubs on this project. He’s a brilliant poet, artist, and creative mind and I’ve been honored to put together these designs with him.
I hid a bunch of stuff in the keyboard, let me know if you find all 4 easter eggs. These are kicking off the launch of “The Cafeteria”, which will be an area of the site that showcases work from other artists and brands. More to come, please let me know if you or someone you know would like to sell on the site! Okay thank you!!!
After the murder of George Floyd I began protesting with the world.
"No Justice, No Peace!"
I decided to use my expression and art to join and support the movement.
With the shirt, "Defund the police, Refund The Teachers."
I plan to reinvest the proceeds to students around my community, who are interested in poetry and art, using their voices to change the world.
The NYPD is allocated close to $11B for 2020. Eleven. Billion. Dollars. It’s time for cities across the country to re-allocate resources from police departments and put them towards areas that can actually improve the lives of their citizens.
Police officers shouldn’t be called when there’s a mental health emergency, or when there’s a cat in a tree. They’re not trained for it, and they’re bringing guns to a non-fight.
So let’s put some of that money into the education system, pay teachers what they deserve, and help teach the next generation of kids that history does not need to repeat itself.
Defund the Police, Refund the Teachers on Cubs’ antique Remington on the front, POETRY STILL MATTERS in Cubs’ handwriting on the back.
