Unpresidented; the real shithole. Kelly Holohan's latest poster created in response to Donald Trump's SHITHOLE comment. I hesitated printing this on a t-shirt because, while the business has a progressive activist vibe I try to remain positive, but this graphic was too good not to share.
I met Kelly Holohan during my first summer at Adam's Nest, she was drawn in by the SILENCE=DEATH t-shirt hanging on the door. We began talking and I learned of her Sorry We're Closed project, "a body of work designed to bring attention to LGBTQ human rights around the world" and she shared one she had created for in memoriam of Orlando's Pulse mass shooting; 49 Flores to support the victims, survivors and their families.
I followed Kelly on social media and saw her UNITE graphic she sported at the Women's March and knew I wanted to have her work on t-shirts at Adam's Nest. Adam's Nest is thrilled to offer the UNITE t-shirt in support of Planned Parenthood and UPSIDE DOWN t-shirt in support of Greenpeace; 10% of proceeds are donated to the respective organizations.
This latest bloviation and untruths stated by those within the current administration are unacceptable and must be called out. "SHITHOLE" was "allegedly" spoken during a conversation regarding DACA, immigration and the budget. The United States is a nation of immigrants and we must never forget the values enshrined in our constitution. As Thomas Jefferson said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
In Emma Lazarus' poem on the Statue of Liberty our welcoming attitude is enshrined.
10% of proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt support the Indivisible Fund in its mission is to cultivate and lift up a grassroots movement of local Indivisible groups to advance progressive values and policies.
In the words of Leonardo Da Vinci "Nothing strengthens authority so much so as silence". We will continue to call out the abhorrent moves of those in Washington DC.
