18 Million Rising partnered with artist and graphic designer, Safwat Saleem, to celebrate Asian American power and resistance with this 4 pack of enamel pins. In each pack, you will find four custom-colored enamel pins.
Survive and Thrive: Our resilience is beautiful. This pin is inspired by the acts of resilience that happen every day in Asian American communities as we struggle to survive and thrive.
- Tell Your Story: Asian Americans are fighting for visibility. For us, that means speaking out, being heard, and lifting up those whose stories are erased and marginalized. Tell them loudly and tell them proudly!
- Fiery Like Our Foremothers: Everyday, we work to honor those who have come before us. We strive to embody the same fire and fight as our foremothers.
- Decolonize Your Soul: As Asian Americans, we must fight our own complicity in anti-Black racism and settler colonialism. We are committed to ending white supremacy and that starts with decolonizing ourselves.
All proceeds from these enamel pins will support 18 Million Rising campaigns. 18 Million Rising brings Asian American communities together online and offline to reimagine Asian American identity with nuance, specificity, and power. We use Asian American identity as the foundation to build a more just and creative world where our experiences are affirmed, our leadership is valued, and all of us have the opportunity to thrive.
