"In times of bigotry and injustice, the artist community has always stood on the side of marginalized people. With the election of Donald Trump bigotry and injustice now stand center stage. When Donald Trump, his inevitable cabinet of political and corporate Washington insiders, and the rest of the Alt-Right burn the constitution, we burn the American Flag.
While symbols and fabric feel no pain, people do.
The forth coming administration will hurt the poor and their inclusion of the Alt-Right will hurt the LGBTQ community.
100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to a LGBTQ advocacy center in Pittsburgh, PA and Planned Parenthood in Northeast Ohio.
No One Is Free When Others Are Oppressed." - Anti-Flag
