US-based artists Clay Hickson, Allison Filice and Liana Jegers have created a series of prints to raise money for a charity providing legal services to families separated on the country’s border with Mexico.
Texas-based RAICES is currently working to track and connect all children separated with their parents following the Trump administration’s policy changes on unlawful border crossings. The authorities have been arresting and jailing adults while sending their children to separate detention camps. The “zero tolerance” policy has been widely condemned across political lines, with the UN claiming that the practice “may amount to torture”.
Illustrator Clay Hickson is the founder of Tan & Loose Press and launched monthly publication The Smudge with illustrator Liana Jegers in February 2017 in reaction to the US presidential result. Allison Filice is a San Francisco-based illustrator whose clients include Elephant, Refinery29 and The New Yorker. The artists will donate 100% of the print’s proceeds to the RAICES Family Reunification Bond Fund. Prints can be purchased via the artists’ websites, which are listed below.
