On August 12, 2017, Heather Heyer was murdered by a white supremacist in a car who plowed through a crowd of anti-racist protestors during a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her tragic death was an eye-opener for those who underestimated the violence and terror the far-right is capable of. This is our tribute to Heather.
These 10″ x 15.5″ posters were designed in-house and printed with a combination of processes—the image and union bug were offset printed, and the text was set by hand, one letter at a time, on a Vandercook letterpress with wooden type and ornaments. They were printed with vegetable-based ink on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
All proceeds after PayPal fees will be donated to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund. Since 2015, they have donated tens of thousands of dollars to anti-fascists around the world who are facing insurmountable legal fees as well as medical bills sustained from standing up against hate.
Heather Heyer was a paralegal and a civil rights activist. She died doing what was right—let her death not be in vain.
