The “America is Great” hat is an art project where we replaced the “Make America Great Again” phrase made popular by Donald Trump and translated it into Arabic. The hat is created in defiance of the negative and divisive rhetoric used by Trump and every penny (minus production cost) from the pledge will be donated to ACLU to help protect the rights of over 3.3 million Muslim Americans.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS
The idea of banning Muslim immigrants and/or creating a registry for Muslim Americans is just plain wrong. And if we, as Americans, don’t stand up for our fellow Americans, then we’re no longer a truly united states. It takes every single one of us - no matter where we’re from - to make this country great.
Raise $2,500 (100 hats) to help fight any unconstitutional policy proposals toward Muslim Americans or any other minority groups.
SHOW ME THE MONEY
All profits from this project will go directly to the ACLU or other similar non-profit organization that is dedicated to fighting unjust legislation against minorities. When we reach our goal, we will clearly list each contributor and the amount before we send the donation.

Risks and challenges
The main challenge will be not meeting the pledge goal due to lack of awareness. We will be doing everything we can to generate interest in this project via social media, and other mediums. The hat will be featured in a high-end clothing store in Los Angeles and we are currently reaching out to other news organizations to create buzz.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
