For my friend Julie Pierce the Personal is Political so just weeks into her retirement she is putting her money and considerable talent where her mouth is and has started this wonderful little enterprise. For the moment calling it Personal is Political.
She is buying shirts – as many white ones as she can find – from Op shops and embroidering political slogans on the back or pocket.
I have a glut of white shirts … so she has embroidered two for me ...Feminist as Fuck and Nevertheless She Persisted… I love them.
This weekend Julie will be at the Palm Sunday Rally for Refugee Action Coalition at Belmore Park, March 25th ( the one near Central Railway ) from 2pm with about 12 shirts. All monies go to Charity, that is 100%. of the money.
If you love the Knitting Nanas admire Katharine Hamnett …. who said ” People are fighting back now, thank God. I think Trump has galvanized America. I mean, the Women’s March! I’m addicted to the Amy Goodman [Democracy Now!] show. It was great that people had suddenly woken up, got out of bed, and said, We can make a difference, from having been so apathetic…. So check out “Personal is Political” at Belmore Park this Sunday.
If would like a shirt and can’t get to the Rally get in touch with Julie on the email below…
