HOW DID IT BEGIN?
WE STARTED HANDWRITTEN REVOLUTION AFTER HOLDING A POLITICAL LETTER-WRITING PARTY FOR OUR FRIENDS. WE PROVIDED PACKETS OF MATERIALS, POSTAGE, AND PROMPTS SO EVERYONE WAS READY TO GO. OUR PACKETS WERE SO WELL RECEIVED THAT WE REALIZED THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WANTING TO DO SOMETHING BUT ARE OVERWHELMED, UNDER-ORGANIZED, OR ARE JUST PLAIN BUSY! WHATEVER THE CASE - WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU!
HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR PROMPTS?
WE BOTH WORK FOR, AND ARE ACTIVE WITH LOCAL NONPROFITS + SUBSCRIBE TO A PLETHORA OF NEWSLETTERS. WE KEEP TRACK OF THE ISSUES THAT COME UP OVER A MONTH AND THEN NARROW DOWN TO 6 AT PRINTING TIME.
I work locally in violence prevention for children + women and like to take that passion to the streets and the capitol. I'm currently living my best life with my cat Ruth and spending my time taking down the patriarchy, one hand-lettered quote at a time on my instagram - @StationaryStandard.
I work for a local international aid organization but spend my time volunteering locally as well as running and participating in many many clubs. Currently: Ladies Life Skills Club, Craft Club, Letter-Writing Club, Feminist Club, and Calling Club.
I live with my girlfriend and our many many cats. I <3 crafts.
