Family Is Sacred T-Shirt
Family Is Sacred T-Shirt
In response to the abhorrent and inhumane practice of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern U.S. border, Our Sacred Women, Fashion Mamas and Deluxe Screen Printing - 3 woman-of-color-owned, LA-based businesses - have joined forces to create a limited edition, organic tee to 1) bring awareness to this dire issue and 2) raise money to help the children and their families receive the legal support they need. We donated 100% of profits from our first two runs to ACLU and RAICES Texas and will continue giving back by donating 10% of profits to RAICES Texas.
Join us in making a bold statement to the world that FAMILY IS SACRED no matter country of origin, race, ethnicity, class or other social markers. WE WILL NOT FORGET the image of the two year old girl in the pink top crying as she watched her mother being arrested. WE WILL NOT FORGET the recording of the traumatized cries of children in a detention facility amidst the joking from a border agent. And WE WILL NOT FORGET the physical pain we felt whenever we held our own children and thought of all the children alone in sparse, intimidating holding centers. Collectively, we will channel our energy, our heartbreak, and our pain into strong, constructive efforts to ensure all of our children are kept safe. Now and always.
This premium unisex shirt is 100% 6 oz GOTS certified, GMO-free organic cotton jersey, sustainably made by hand as well as screen printed by hand in Los Angeles using eco-friendly water-based ink that is free of PVC, lead, phthalates, heavy metals, AZO compounds, nonylphenol, and formaldehyde - all of which are commonly found in conventional screen printing ink. We are proud to partner with local businesses that provide employees with safe working conditions, living wage, and who support our efforts to honor women. Please allow for slight variations as each piece is made and screen printed by hand.
When referring to the size guide, t-shirt sizing goes according to the men's chart as it is unisex. Also, please note that these custom shirts are longer in length than typical tees.
