The Resistance Benefit is an online exhibition and art sale that aims to create unity and solidarity in the wake of our government’s assault on our personal civil liberties and the liberties of our fellow humans. Our goal is to resist against the xenophobia, racism, misogyny, homophobia and hate being spread by the Trump administration.
100% of the proceeds will benefit Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting hate, teaching tolerance and seeking justice. The organization has a long track record of fighting white supremacy and hate groups in the US since its founding in 1971.
How to Submit
🌟 Please fill out the form here.🌟
Price your piece between $25-$100.
Please note that the artist is responsible for shipping costs and will mail their pieces directly to the buyer as part of the donation, so ideally the work should be small, light and easily shippable (such as drawings, prints, or photographs).
When a piece sells, we will email you the shipping info. When the item has shipped, please send us the tracking number for us to send a confirmation email to the buyer, and the transaction is complete.
You will be asked to upload your images to Dropbox or Google Docs and share the link with us in the form. Images should be web-ready: at least 72dpi, no more than 200 dpi, and the image should be square.
Thank you! No hate, no fear.
Ginger + Friends
The benefit sale is online-only and open to anyone in the Ginger extended network. In the spirit of inclusivity, we are accepting all donations - this is a radically open curation method, to match the spirit of the project. We humbly thank you for your generosity and fighting spirit!

CARLA AVRUCH is a Ginger contributor whose work was featured in Ginger Issue 1. She is an artist who lives and works in Ridgewood, NY. Utilizing painting and drawing as a means of meditation, Carla creates non-representational images that suggest natural forms.

She is excited to channel her political outrage into something productive and positive. Let’s do this!
