The outcome will likely be decided by just a handful of states. And make no mistake: attempts are being made right now to unfairly tip the playing field and influence the vote—from voter intimidation to outright misinformation.
In response to this reality, Movement Voter Project has identified 42 local groups working in key battleground states to fight voter suppression, mobilize voters, and build infrastructure that will lead to lasting change. All net proceeds from this fundraiser will be distributed by Movement Voter Project to these grassroots organizations working on the ground.
States of Change was organized to support this meaningful and much-needed work.
Movement Voter Project is honored to partner with States of Change and world-renowned photographers to support critical voter organizing in the top five battleground states. Together, we are funding incredible local organizations that will get out the vote in the final weeks and continue their vital life saving work beyond election day.
We are thrilled to be offering affordable art in support of Movement Voter Project. But it is also our duty to protect our artists' interests. By purchasing this artwork, you agree to do so under the following conditions:
(1) You must not display the artwork in a museum, gallery, exhibition, or otherwise public nature, without the express written consent of the artist.
(2) You must not resell the artwork without the express consent of the artist.
(3) You are a human making an individual purchase, and not a bot designed to make rapid purchases.
(4) You agree to not make any further copies of the image after its purchase.
All sales are final. Because all net proceeds are being donated to Movement Voter Project, refunds will not be possible.
This is not a typical ecommerce store. Every effort will be made to fulfill orders as quickly as possible, but depending on the number of orders we receive some may take several weeks or longer to arrive. In the event of an extended order fulfillment time, we will provide regular updates about fulfillment status.
Prints are available for $150 plus shipping costs. All images are printed on the same size paper, 10 x 12", with at least a 1.5" border on all sides. This means that the printed area is 7 x 9" or smaller. The actual printed area varies for each image depending on aspect ratio. Prints are available in a non-numbered open edition and are unsigned.
All prints are made on Canson Platine Fibre Rag 310. This is a premium 100% cotton paper that offers the look and aesthetic of the original darkroom baryta fiber print and complies with the ISO 9706 standard for maximum longevity. Prints are made from digital files using archival inkjet printing—sometimes referred to as pigment printing, or gicleé printing. This method is the current industry standard for photographic printing.
Printing services for this fundraiser are being provided by Light Work. An amount of $15.50 will be deducted from the cost of each print to offset expenses for production and fulfillment. All net proceeds go to Movement Voter Project.
