Shepard Fairey Joins Emerson Collective in Support of DREAM Act

Shepard Fairey is joining the Emerson Collective to support an immigration program protecting people who were brought to the U.S. as children that’s embroiled in the impending government shutdown.
The artist and Obey Giant founder released an updated version of his popular “We the People Print” featuring a woman wearing a shirt with an eagle eating a rattlesnake, a symbol of Mexico, to read “Dream Act Now!” Emerson Collective, a nonprofit focused on social justice founded by Laurene Powell Jobs, a philanthropist and widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs, is encouraging supporters to get the prints, being given away for free, in hopes that they will spur Congressional action and be used during the upcoming Women’s March.

Emerson Collective also collaborated at the end of last year with Virgil Abloh of Off-White on a T-shirt reading “We Are All Dreamers” that was worn and promoted by a number of celebrities and high-profile fashion figures. Jessica Chastain, Ellen Degeneres, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Goldie Hawn, Selena Gomez, Naomi Campbell Grace Coddington and even Barbara Bush, daughter of former Republican president George Bush, have all promoted and worn the shirts.
