For its latest release, AWAKE NY has released a T-shirt in partnership with creative studio Chroma in order to raise awareness on migrant rights. The tee is printed with the phrase, “PROTECT PEOPLE NOT BORDERS,” as a means of drawing attention to the ongoing conditions at the US-Mexico border.
Crafted in 100% cotton, the shirt is featured with a white base and a red graphic front and center. On the back, there are guidelines that lay out a few legal rights “IF DETAINED BY ICE,” including requesting an attorney, remaining silent and not signing any documents. It comes offered in both an English and Spanish version.
The tee is priced at $50 USD and all proceeds will be donated to two organizations, Al Otro Lado and Casa Arcoiris, which provide various services for immigrants and migrants. It’s available to purchase now from AWAKE NY’s webstore.
