(as of Jan 19,2022 11:30:11 UTC – Details)
Here’s the story behind Dissent Pins: In the week following the 2016 election, I heard one story that inspired me. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a special collar she wears on days when she dissents from decisions being handed down by the Supreme Court. (She also has a collar she wears when she’s reading majority opinions.)
Justice Ginsburg wore her dissent collar on November 9, 2016, a day when no opinions were read.
I decided to make replicas of RBG’s collar as a holiday gift, and contacted one of my favorite illustrators, Caitlin Kuhwald, who produced the illustration that was turned into 100 hard enamel pins. As I gave them out, I got more and more requests for them.
Then, on January 28th, I watched videos and photos of lawyers lining up in airports to offer assistance to people coming into the US. My first thought was: these are lawyers that should never want for resources. So I asked Caitlin to help me make a package for the Dissent Collar pins, and we opened this store.
50% of the profits from every Dissent Collar pin will go to organizations doing important work right now: the work of defending our democracy.
