Square Print Sale: Charity Information
Solidarity, the July 2020 Square Print Sale, in support of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and in collaboration with Vogue, brings together a selection of over 100 images and texts by international visual artists. In a year of global societal and political upheaval that has seen the Black Lives Matter cause taken up around the world as hundreds of millions face government restrictions on movement, this theme challenges participating photographers to reflect upon the power of togetherness in tumultuous times.
The NAACP continues to work tirelessly to interrupt destructive systems of racism and anti-blackness—social, cultural, political and economic. Support for the NAACP is as crucial now as it has ever been. Some of the organization’s current focuses are registering US voters, ensuring access to ballot boxes, and challenging corruption in the courts. Magnum photographers are proud to support the NAACP’s mission by donating 50% of their Square Print Sale proceeds. Thank you to everyone who is contributing!
For this sale, Magnum photographers and Vogue will both be donating 50% of their proceeds to the NAACP.
