The Green Bandana Project
Designed by Niege Borges in support of Whole Woman's Health Alliance. We're in this together.
On June 24, 2022, our jaws collectively dropped with the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the U.S. The fear was palpable. It felt personal. It was is personal.
We took inspiration from the Latin American abortion-rights movement, the green wave (or green tide), and the symbolic green bandanas worn by activists and allies. Green symbolized nature, growth, and reclaiming the term “pro-life.”
In partnership with Niege Borges, a Brazilian artist & illustrator, we created a wearable piece of art representing a collective of people coming together— ALL BODIES ONE VOICE, ONE VOICE ALL BODIES. A statement that says the same thing no matter how it’s read. We’re in this together.
100% of proceeds from THE GREEN BANDANA PROJECT will be donated to the Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, a not for profit committed to providing reproductive care for their patients, including abortion care and eradicating the stigma around abortion.
