Safety Pin Brooch
Safety Pin Brooch
The Safety Pin Movement is a sign of solidarity. By wearing a safety pin you will signify that you are a safe person and willing to stand up for the vulnerable and marginalized populations (minorities, immigrants, women, members of the L.G.B.T. community, ect). The safety pin movement is not a political movement. It does not signify that you are Democratic or Republican. It is merely a simple way to signify to a vulnerable member of our separated society that you will not harm, harass, belittle, or marginalize them. It also signifies that in a dangerous situation, you are willing to stand up to the bullies in our society that do harm, harass, belittle and marginalize our fellow humans.
$10 of your safety pin purchase will be donated to the organization of your choice. These organizations fight for the rights of our most vulnerable populations. Each Donation will help them continue to fight for the liberty that all Americans deserve. Please see below to learn more about the organizations you can donate to.
