Evil Eye Glove

Craftivism

We the People, are watching

On March 24, students and and their families will March For Our Lives and take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end the epidemic of mass school shootings in America. Krista Suh, the creator of the Pussyhat Project, is calling on craftivists to help create a sea of eyes at the march to show Congress just how many pairs of eyes are on them right now.

For information on how you can contribute and participate visit the March for our Lives facebook page and kristasuh.com.
