We have teamed up with Mana Urban Arts, Jonathan Mannion, Art in General, I Vote Because Campaign and The Voter Party to launch Project 270, an initiative that focuses on encouraging 18 to 38 year olds to vote. We have partnered with more than 50 artists from every state across the country (plus Puerto Rico and Washington DC) to create state-specific posters to maximize voter participation.
We're planning a nationwide campaign to send tens of thousands of posters into cities and college campuses around the country. To do this, we've started a Kickstarter where you can secure numbered limited editions of each poster. In addition, all posters will be available to the public for free via digital download on www.project270.org.
When the tristate shutdown occurred this past March, screenprinting was deemed essential due to the overwhelming demand for health and safety signage. We teamed up with Eric Orr and went to work for Urban Pathways. To date, we have delivered over 1,000 posters (and over 400 t-shirts) for use in all of the buildings and apartments.
Urban Pathways, a not-for-profit, social services and supportive housing organization, serves as the first point of contact for homeless New Yorkers and now, more than ever, your support is vital. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, Urban Pathways continues to provide housing and essential services to more than 1,000 individuals every day and works to move as many homeless men and women off the streets as possible. In order to maintain and promote the wellbeing, health and safety of all of the residents during this crisis, UP’s essential services team has increased by 50%.
