Social Justice Hustle Pin
Design by Christy NaMee Eriksen. Soft enamel pin, 1" across.
Social justice hustle. You know the way activists be up all night. Dragging their kids to community meetings. Writing press releases on their lunch breaks. It is the WORK. The work after work after work. Passionate about making change, even when they're weary, even when they're busy, even when it's hella inconvenient - at best. The hustle looks different for different folks, but it always takes mad effort and it is always for a better world.
10% of all proceeds from our Social Justice Hustle collection is donated to a social justice cause. All current purchases will support Sealaska Heritage Institute's (SHI) art programs. SHI is doing monumental work in our communities and their art programs embody survivance, celebration, cross-cultural education, and cultural equity. Learn more about their work here.
