We the People, are amazing!

Yesterday your contributions made crowdfunding history. In just 8 days, 22,840 Kickstarter backers raised $1,365,105 to become the most funded art campaign in crowdfunding history. Today our imagery and words about American identity and values are taking over the streets and the walls of this country. Tomorrow, We The People art will run as full-page color ads in the New York Post, USA TODAY, and the Washington Post. On inauguration day, pick up that piece of history that you helped create and share it with your communities!

All of our public distribution sites in Washington, DC are now online here (http://bit.ly/2k2UwTF)! We have FREE artwork at each of these locations and special events. We can't tell you how crucial and majorly appreciated your role in this effort is. Please carry this artwork through the streets, at your protests, hang in your windows and share with your community in public spaces. For those of you not in Washington, DC this weekend, all artwork is available online as free high resolution downloads, so you can print locally.

Thanks for making history with us, 

The Amplifiers

      When will I receive my backer gift?

    2. Shaun Wegscheid on January 31

      Received my Washington Post backorder (10$). Full page of Greater than Fear is on the back page of the front section.

      Put on your big boy pants and take the new governing body like an AMERICAN and like the other half of the country has done for the past 8 years.

      Greater than Fear is in the New York Times page A15 (not the NY Post).

    6. Shaun Wegscheid on January 20

      Its a bit pricey, but you can order 'back issues' of the Washington Post on their website (10$) if you can't find it in your area. I'm assuming a back issue of it would still have the full page ad?

    7. Shaun Wegscheid on January 20

      New York Times? I think I can actually find that one! Thanks guys!

      I can confirm its in the USA Today down here in Houston.

      Not in the NY post, it is in The NY Times.

      Yup - definitely NY Times. It's all over Twitter...

      Guys... I think the poster ended up in the NY Times rather than the NY Post...

      Purchased a copy of USA Today in Berkeley, CA and I found a full-page "Defend Dignity" ad on page 14A!

      Hi! I purchased the NY Post today (1/20) also and didn't see any ad. :(

    14. Greg Barbee on January 20

      It was not in the National Edition of today's NY Post either (to clarify from the NY versions described below). Defend Dignity looks great on p 14A of today's USA Today though!

      Hi, I didn't see it in the NY Post in Manhattan today either (like Jason Baluyut). Can you tell us where we should look if we're in NYC? Thanks.

      Hi, I bought the New York Post this morning (Inauguration Day) and didn't see any full-page ad. What's up? (Thank you for this project!)

      THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO much for doing this. I was so sad about all of this ... losing President Obama. Your project has helped me feel like there is light and the end of this tunnel and someone else to wall through the darkness with...

      Through art, truth is revealed. I'm happy to be a part of this project.

    32. Tatjana Krizmanic on January 19

      Thank you for organizing this - I am so moved by everyone's participation and the beauty of art. I do wish, inspired by President Obama's words at this last press conference, that we had included a farmer or an auto worker - we have to be all inclusive, otherwise we become just like what we are protesting against. THANK YOU again!

      Will there be any posters for the LA march that could be picked up???
