Amy and I have launched the ‘Take Action Tee-shirt’ campaign. With your help, we are presently raising money and awareness for three groups who work with Latino community building and immigration issues:
As we all know, immigration is a crucial and sensitive issue. Many opinions are being fostered by fear tactics and racism. We support grass roots groups who foster and provide a humane and fair approach to the myriad issues facing immigrants, particularly but not solely, Latino immigrants in the U.S.
On the most recent tour, we completely SOLD OUT of the current tee- shirts and had to re-order. There are plenty more to be had now, and the tee-shirt is a powerful design by activist artist Lalo Alcaraz.
In time, we will be introducing a new tee-shirt, whose sales will go to groups working on death penalty issues. Both Amy and I seek to see the abolishment of the death penalty in the U.S. An inmate on death row will design that new tee. Please stay tuned for upcoming info.
So, the idea of “Take Action Tee-shirts’ is to continue to generate support for different grass roots groups, whose work is human rights.
The campaign will be ongoing, and we encourage you to check in periodically for updates and a chance to WEAR YOUR CONSCIENCE ON YOUR SLEEVE.
