With a growing number of people calling for the abolition of ICE, we’ve noticed more brands selling anti-ICE shirts. Meet the designers behind these tees below. (And if you want to find ways to help the victims of our harsh immigration system, here’s a list of places where you can donate.)

Chicago artist Roy Martinez screen printed these 100 percent cotton tees with a message we feel all too strongly. The interdisciplinary artist, who received their BFA and MFA from CalArts, creates work that touches on cultural identity, sexuality, and oppression in the United States.

Nepantla’s Chinga Tu Migra is not only v. accurate, it also raises money for RAICES, an organization working to reunite the many families that were separated at the border. Nepantla was started by Texas-based artists Francisco Garcia and Claudia G. Aparicio Gamundi.

Both immigration officials and the police have terrorized our communities, and this sweater highlights these similarities. Jotx Wear is run by Ramiro Alexis Gonzalez, who regularly centers queerness in his designs.

War of Icaza dropped its Fuck ICE tee nearly two years ago, and the message remains pertinent. War of Icaza is a group – made up of Geraldo Nicarao, Yung Faded Mane, Tiny G, Shaggy, and The Irish Threat – that seeks to decolonize all nations.
