We are very proud to announce that Abraham Associates are now the midwest sales reps for Dissent Pins, makers of inspiring pins, jewelry, stickers, and other gift items.
Created by a team of experienced grassroots activists and progressives, Dissent Pins was founded after the 2016 election to honor and recognize Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s famous “dissent collar” that she wears on days when she dissents from decisions being handed down by the Supreme Court, and her message of respectful dissent.
After an initial run of replica “dissent collar” enamel pins were given away as gifts, the company’s founder was inspired to do more, to raise funds in support of the lawyers and organizations helping people trying to come to the US in the face of the administration’s attempted ban on immigration. Now Dissent Pins donates 50% of the profits to organizations that are directly engaged in fighting for better lives for fellow citizens.
In 2018, Dissent Pins donated $170,936.22 to organizations including The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Bronx Freedom Fund, Planned Parenthood, Black Girls Code, DIY Girls, ChickTech, Trans Lifeline, Transgender Law Center, and the ACLU.
Each group of products that Dissent Pins makes has its own set of organizations that are supported by these donations. For more information about which organizations are supported by which products, check out the product pages on Dissent Pins’ web site. For instance, their new Orlando Ribbon Project Pin supports The LGBT+ Center Orlando.
We’re very happy to be aligned, and indeed, allied, with Dissent Pins in their efforts to support these excellent organizations.
Here’s a gallery of some of the very cool products we are looking forward to talking about this summer!
