Lawrence Lessig 2016

I REALLY like Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate. He is a champion of many social justice and progressive issues I care about. Bernie Sanders has a great record of public service and courage. However, even if Bernie Sanders were elected president, his policies would be hindered by a Congress corrupted by the current campaign finance structure. As many of you know, I have made campaign-finance-reform, or to be more blunt, legal bribery reform, a major focus of my art and politics. Current campaign finance structure encourages favoritism toward powerful corporate and special interest donors that is nothing short of corruption. When the wants and needs of the majority of people are ignored to favor the desires of the rich and powerful minority, the campaign system and democracy itself is broken. As the media speculates on the outcome of the primary season, I have been speaking more recently about my strategy to push principles rather than personalities through my art. However, if there is a personality who embodies the principle of campaign-finance-reform that is essential to restoring democracy, it is Lawrence Lessig. Lessig is an anti-corruption reform activist, more than a politician, but he knows that we will never get a true democracy, or the best versions of the politicians we support, until the broken campaign finance system is fixed. Check out his statements and help give attention to this issue and support its reform! Thanks for caring.
-Shepard Fairey

Support Jack Healey!

Jack Healey is the former director of Amnesty International and has always been an outspoken human rights activist and supporter. He’s the one that encouraged me to create a poster of Aung San Suu Kyi to bring awareness to the human rights cause in Burma. Jack was friends with Joe Strummer and is friends with Antonino D’Ambrosio whom I worked with on “Let Fury Have the Hour.” He’s a great man with a lifetime record of fighting oppression and I’m happy to support him help get his memoir completed. Please support Jack and contribute to his campaign. Thanks for caring. – Shepard

Diplomacy VS War

I believe in Brave New Films’ mission, so much, that I’m actually a board member. Brave New Films promotes peace and justice by researching and presenting facts that raise awareness about issues and often reveal an alternative to the fear-based narratives adored by masters of manipulation as well as most media. Their new short piece about the similarities between the push for war with Iraq and now Iran reveal a disheartening pattern to rush to war rather than to value diplomacy. Check it out.
