With voter suppression running rampant and threats to the USPS effecting mail-in turnout, it is more important than ever to make your voice heard. But beyond showing up to the polls on November 3rd (or voting early!), you can help encourage people to vote by, well, shopping. Brands like Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman, Levi’s, and more are launching merch that actively encourages everyone to make their vote count. Proceeds from their products will be funneled directly to causes including Black Lives Matter, nonprofits that aim to close the voting gap, and more organizations that will make a difference. Read on to see where to effectively cast your dollars—with Lizzo’s approval, no less—here.
When We All Vote T-Shirt
Inspired by the Prabal Gurung ethos “Stronger in Colour,” this bold shirt looks as good and it does good. Fifteen percent of the proceeds will go to the organization When We All Vote, which uses both grassroots efforts and social media campaigns to create an engaging and accessible voting culture.
Vote Cotton T-Shirt
Not only will 100% of the profits from this tee benefit NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF), but these shirts are produced in Los Angeles by FKSP, a Black-owned and operated business by fashion designer Folake Kuye Huntoon. If you’re looking for something a little more premium, try out Michael Kors Collection’s cashmere sweater emblazoned with the word VOTE.
The 50/50 Vote Boot
Stuart Weitzman’s 5050 boots are iconic, so the brand is using its OTK platform to urge you to vote. Act fast, because only 100 pairs were made, with 100 percent of net profits donated to the nonprofit nonpartisan organization I am a voter.
