One year after the first Women’s March on Washington, people across America took to the streets again to stand and march together peacefully for Women’s Rights and Human Rights. With over 500,000 marching in Los Angeles alone, it was a day to remember. It was also incredible to see so many of the iconic We The People posters Shepard created for the Amplifier Foundation being used in the march, including an updated twist to his collaborative piece with Ari Mejorado calling for a renewed Dream Act.
“I was excited to see the enthusiastic support for the DREAMERS at the various Women’s Marches this weekend. DREAMERS deserve support and compassion because they were brought to the United States as children and know no other home than the United States. They make a positive contribution to our economy and our society. It is time to give them legal status under the conditions of the Dream Act and let them live without fear of potential deportation. Thank you Ari Mejorado for collaborating and Emerson Collective and Amplifier Art for disseminating the #DreamActNow image.” – Shepard Fairey
