Come to the 123 Printshop and learn to print your own original posters, t-shirts, and more! Volunteers will help you out with the entire process. Bring black and white artwork on plain white paper or a transparency, and a screen if you have one. We have a small collection of screens -- you can purchase one from us for $5-$15, depending on the size and whether or not you want to keep the screen for later use. We also provide affordable screenprinting services.

Hold the New York Post


The New York Post recently published the political cartoon shown here, depicting two white police officers standing over the carcass of a bullet-riddled chimpanzee, with the animal representing the author of the stimulus package.

The decision to run this cartoon was irresponsible at best, and hurtful and malicious at worst. It seems unthinkable that an editor of a newspaper would not understand the history of Black folks being depicted as monkeys and apes or the recent spate of death threats against President Obama. Worse, when confronted, Post editor Col Allan dismissed people's concerns as baseless.

Join us in demanding that The Post issue an apology for the decision and their callousness, and fire the editor who allowed this cartoon to go to print.

5. Working alone? Nope - She has a African American male on here side (wears a baseball cap,
grey or black hoodie w/ shiny stuff on the back...Glitter? not sure. He normally sits on stoops
across the street, I guess so no one comes and hustles her out of their money. This guy
