This poster was created from a sticker originally designed for a criminal justice reform campaign by Amplifier Foundation. The text reads “…MLK was arrested 30 times as part of a strategy for social change. Today in the U. S. young men of color are incarcerated at the HIGHEST RATE in the WORLD. The rate is 1 in 17 white men, 1 in 3 black men and 1 in 6 Latino men.”

Amplifier Foundation writes “Prisons don’t work. One out of every 100 Americans is behind bars. The U.S. spends $80 billion/year on incarceration. Seventy million Americans have a criminal record. In too many neighborhoods young people of color are more likely to go to prison than to college. It’s time to move #beyondprisons. If you or your family have been affected by this system of mass incarceration, we would like to hear from you. ”

“Tell us your story by uploading it to social media as either a short video or short story using the hashtag #myprisonstory.”


The Dinè nation is rich with oil, natural gas, coal, uranium + water in aquifers.  Yet, as a result of decades of being treated as a colonized nation approximately 25% of the 180,000 people living on the rez don’t have running water (or electricity though more people are getting solar systems).

This new 2 color, 16″ x 25″ hand pulled screen print,  edition of 100 will be used to raise money for Dig Deep, a private California based company bringing water (+ solar energy) to the rez through the Navajo Water Project.  The prints go for $70 including shipping with 100% of funds going to the Navajo Water Project.
