Artist collective working at the intersection of fine art and environmentalism The Earth Issue is launching an emergency “Freedom Fundraiser” in response to the current #BlackLivesMatter protests. The print sale was created to support organizations fighting for social justice and raise funds for bail contributions.

Over the last 24 hours, more than 80 artists and photographers from around the world have donated prints, ranging from nature photography and abstract drawings to intimate portraiture. All of the proceeds after printing and shipping will be donated to George Floyd bail funds and the 4Front Project, a U.K.-based organization that empowers young people to fight for justice, peace and freedom.

Retailing for £100 GBP each (approx. $126 USD), the prints will launch on The Earth Issue’s website beginning June 5 at 10 a.m. GMT+1. The print sale will run for 30 days and funds will be paid out to the organizations every three days.
