Stand Our Ground poster by Tes One

Laws should be designed to protect the innocent, the unarmed, the child walking back home from the corner store. Florida’s Stand Your Ground law does the opposite by giving license to any aggressor with a gun, and allowing them to claim self-defense as their reasoning to shoot and kill another person.

I created Stand Our Ground for people – regardless of race or gender – to stand in solidarity against the injustice this law allows. Adding awareness to the Trayvon Martin tragedy, and aiding his family in their pursuit of justice. All proceeds from the release of Stand Our Ground will be donated to the Justice for Trayvon Charity and their advocacy efforts. Stand Our Ground is available exclusively through 1xRun.
