In a time when we’re all just trying to do our best in the face of ever-mounting odds, it’s always amazing to see rad people coming together to support causes that they believe in. Today via her Twitter account, Nancy Drew and Jem: The Misfits artist Jenn St-Onge announced that she’s making her exclusive Batwoman print available for a limited time to raise money for a whole bunch of charities working to help families separated at the border, including the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, Womens Refugee Commission, the ACLU, and more.

On her site, St-Onge states, “Proceeds from the sales of this print will go to ACLU and nine other organizations designed to assist and protect vulnerable migrants in the United States, especially those families who have been separated by ICE. Reading the news these past weeks has been especially heartbreaking and I don’t know what I could create right now that would feel appropriate for the context, but I think the sentiment of this piece still stands; never give up, never stop fighting for what is right and standing up for those who need it. Thank you so much for your care and compassion, the world needs it right now ♥”
We’re super stoked to see artists like St-Onge take a stand against state violence, and this is also a chance for fans of her art to own a gorgeous piece signed by the artist herself as they support an incredibly important cause. Here are a few other ways you can contribute to the fight.
