Check the MITM Website for Artwork Updates

Keep checking the website for updates on artwork because some of the art sells out and new artwork is also featured on specific dates. For instance, I checked the site this morning and four art pieces by Shark Toof (LA-based artist) is already sold out.

While according to the MITM shop page, new art by Detroit-based artist Sydney James drops on Saturday, 9/15. The piece is entitled “Humble Beginning” and is priced at $75.

The money raised will also help provide direct services and care to rape survivors. All of the proceeds will be matched up to $25,000.

On Our Issue supporting this great cause, DeAndre Levy said:

Our Issue is dedicated to the multitude of women I know and love, and the ones that I don’t know that have the unfortunate experience of sexual violence,” said DeAndre. “As men, and as a society, we owe them more and need to take ownership of the role we play in supporting the culture that makes excuses for rape, harassment, and all forms of violence against women and girls.”

“As a survivor myself, I am thankful to and for the brave Detroit leaders like the SASHA Center, Wayne County SAFE, and Enough SAID that commit their time, energy, and resources to providing services for victims, advocate for policy, and affirm the voices and experiences of survivors every day,” said Desire. “They are heroes amongst us.”

If you’d like to purchase the 2017 Our Issue Mural t-shirt, you can get it here for $45. There are 3 different shirt styles available.
