From their webpage:

The Portland Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines (PCHRP) is an organizing committee of immigrant youth, students, professionals, workers and allies working together in solidarity to advance in the national democratic movement in the Philippines, in the United States through education, leadership development and political action. 

In Portland, PCHRP serves as an outlet for local, national, and international action alerts, media updates, and general information related to human rights violations against Filipinos in the Philippines and U.S. PCHRP organizers lead political education discussions, films, guest speakers, panels, and vigils in response to bring attention to the worsening conditions of Filipinos in Portland, the U.S. and in the Philippines.

A great friend of mine (whose activism I’m in rather awe of/inspired by) works with this group out of Portland, OR and asked me if I’d be open to doing a t-shirt design for them even before I put out the call last week. I gave him a “uuuuhYES” and we got started, settling quickly on a design that integrated traditional textile designs from both cultures.

About the shirt sale proceeds:  These sets will be scheduled to be picked up or delivered by December 20. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit our SAVE OUR SCHOOLS campaign, we are hoping to raise enough money to build a school for 30 indigenous students in Mindanao, Philippines.

You can see their facebook page here and order your own t-shirt to show your support!
