While the world continues to protest and call for racial justice with the Black Lives Matter movement, an incredible group of creatives is collaborating to raise funds for two social justice organizations. Reframing the Future, a photographic print sale is working with top professional photographers and visual artists to fundraise for National Bail Out and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute. Reframing the Future was founded by a group of people united by the common goal of supporting and uplifting communities of color.

In a statement, they said, “We believe confronting white supremacy cannot be achieved without a commitment to honesty, accountability, and direct action.”

Among the 70-plus artists contributing are Adrienne Raquel, Heather Hazzan, June Canedo de Souza, Kyle Weeks, Lia Clay Miller, and Sabrina Santiago, to name a few. All proceeds from the sold prints will be donated to support Black communities in face of police brutality. The fundraising initiative is taking action “to divest from our current system of police brutality and mass incarceration under the guise of public safety while investing in long-term community building and organizing within the Black community.”

The prints are available in a variety of sizes with prices ranging from USD 25 to USD 100. The sale is on now through June 30 on Reframing the Future’s website. See some of the available artworks below:
