Pen and Ink Brigade Strikes Again!

Kid lit artists, all women, create a bi-coastal fundraising art show to support for Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight 2020.

From The Pen and Ink Brigade: 80 Artists Redefine Pink: Blue Wave Project Fundraiser

Pink is Power

What is PINK?

A coalition of 80+ artists, all women, contributed to this bi-coastal, fund-raising art show. Participants include a Caldecott honoree, a New York Times 10 best-illustrated book, a winner of the Ezra Jack Keats Award, the Golden Kite Award, several best selling book creators, and many more.
The proceeds, which will be substantial, are going to help create a more fair and just election process via Stacey Abrams’ new voting rights initiative, Fair Fight Action.
Original art, which makes a great holiday present, can be purchased online at:
Work by these well-known artists rarely is available or sells at these reasonable prices.
You can both get original art and support free and fair elections at the same time!

In two short months, the Pen & Ink Brigade created The BLUE WAVE PROJECT which raised over $6,000 for Emily’s List and VoteRiders through sales of original art, postcards, pins, and t-shirts.
