For this project Emma Fineman wanted to expand the accessories line of her brand Weft + Hide. This unique set of lapel pins are designed by Fineman in her studio in Oakland, California. These pins represent issues that, as an intersectional feminist, Fineman feels very passionate about. Additionally she wanted to create a project that through her designs could help to advocate for various social justice causes.

As a collection these pins represent women's liberation, intersectional feminism, sex positivity, LGBTQ rights, interracial love, POC love, body positivity and super sexy vibes. 

By supporting this campaign and wearing these pins we are taking a step towards creating a more accepting, appreciative, and compassionate environment. This is important in a time when we are faced with major obstacles in fighting for the rights of many groups of oppressed peoples. Visibility is crucial as we try and tackle systems of oppression, and these lapel pins are one way of showing your support. Most importantly by funding this project proceeds of your contribution will be donated to social justice organizations Planned Parenthood Federation, Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Ultra Violet. Join the movement and rep your passions and feels!

 The Process

Each pin design has been hand drawn by Fineman in her studio in Oakland. After making the initial drawing Fineman then scans and redrafts the image in Illustrator creating the best representation of what the final pin will look like. The files are then sent to our manufacturer in London who creates the highest quality version of each design complete with enamel, polished metal, and a rubber pin back to keep them safe and secure during wear. Our pins also come mounted on our custom backing cards pictured above. 

Who we are donating to:

Ultra Violet:

"UltraViolet is a powerful and rapidly growing community of people from all walks of life mobilized to fight sexism and expand women’s rights, from politics and government to media and pop culture. UltraViolet works on a range of issues including health care, economic security, violence, reproductive rights, racial justice, and immigration by putting the voices of all women, especially women of color and LGBTQ women, front and center.

Sexism is everywhere. At UltraViolet, we combine innovative, cutting-edge organizing with grassroots, people-powered actions to fight for equality and progress. Equality at a higher frequency–that’s what we’re all about."- Ultra Violet

https://weareultraviolet.org/about-us/

Planned Parenthood:

"We are a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organizations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide. For nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to women’s health and well-being, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning. 

On campuses and online, in statehouses and courts, in community settings, and in the media, Planned Parenthood is a visible and passionate advocate for policies that enable Americans to access comprehensive reproductive and sexual health care, education, and information. Whether talking with members of Congress, parents, or faith leaders, or arguing cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, we fight for commonsense policies that promote women’s health, allow individuals to prevent unintended pregnancies through access to affordable contraception, and protect the health of young people by providing them with comprehensive sex education. Planned Parenthood has eight million activists, supporters, and donors nationwide. The Planned Parenthood Action Network enables online activists in all 50 states to stay on top of the issues and get involved with campaigns that advance and protect women’s rights and health. Also furthering Planned Parenthood’s mission are several advisory boards and initiatives. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Fortifying our commitment to protect women’s health, educate teens, and prevent unintended pregnancies, the Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including public education campaigns, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy. Advancing Global Health For many individuals around the world, access to vital reproductive and sexual health care and information is blocked — by poverty, a lack of basic services, or politics and war. Planned Parenthood works with local partners in Africa and Latin America to overcome these barriers by increasing access to health care and education. We nurture local leadership, foster sustainable health and education programs, and fight for legal, social, and political improvements in communities around the world. Planned Parenthood Global also advocates for sound U.S. foreign policies that improve the sexual and reproductive health and well-being of individuals and families globally. Planned Parenthood Federation of America is also a founding member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, based in London. "- Planned Parenthood

Risks and challenges

In an attempt to get these pins made and help folks all around the world represent their compassion and identity, Fineman was confronted with high production costs. In order to make this dream become a reality she needs your help to afford these fees! By donating to this Kickstarter you are allowing an artist to realize her dream and make these badass lapel pins become tangible. Since we have worked with our manufacturer before, we are confident in their ability to produce top quality pins. The only risk we foresee associated with this project would be a delay in receiving your pins due to the potential of a higher than normal volume of orders. Thank you for your understanding!
