About the Design - The design was inspired by the call to divest from the police and to invest in community interests in order to eliminate poverty, homelessness, and the school to prison pipeline. I wanted to represent public programs in sectors such as housing, education, and transportation that are underfunded while the police and the carceral state at large are increasingly bankrolled. The speech bubble text is a common protest chant which originated in Chile; in English it translates to “the people united will never be defeated.” It is a reminder of the global fight against systems of injustice everywhere.
