ARTIST CALL! Make art to support Walmart Workers this Black Friday. Expose Walmart!
Dear Poster & Graphic Artists!


This Black Friday, we invite you to help transform the biggest day of mass consumption into a day of mass-resistance.

Join us in using your visual skillz to support a national movement against inequality and exploitation when thousands of workers and activists will be walking on Walmart, challenging the greed of one of America’s wealthiest corporations

Are you in?

We have prepared some guidelines for you in the pages below. Black Friday is THIS WEEK, so we are asking for really fast turnarounds. We will circulate the designs via social media and may print some of them for the various sites.

The best way of supporting them is to not shop at Walmart in the first place.

Actually Christian is dead on right here. Don't shop there and they lose. They cannot stay in business without paying customers!

Making posters sounds like something to do for people who do not work at jobs and sit at home all day smoking joints.

Why don't the Walmart employees refuse to work if they don't want to?  The decision is ultimately theirs.  I know some people who'd be happy to work on TG if it meant they had a job.

People in the service and hotel industries work all holidays all the time. Where's the big protest for those workers?  My Mother never had a New Years Eve off in her life - it was the biggest night of the year in her industry.  What about all the Kroger workers checking people out all day until 5:00 TG evening?  No outcry for them?
