T-shirt of the Week

Democracy Starts at Home Dark T-shirt

Attending the voting rights rally earlier this year inspired me to create this t-shirt. Lots of the participants were carrying placards that said things like "Free DC", "Democracy Starts at Home" and "End Taxation without Representation". The message on this tee refers to our country's fight for democracy abroad while citizens of Washington DC are denied the basic democratic rights at home.
