The Artist: Tré Seals aka Vocal Type (Washington, DC)
Graphic designer and entrepreneur Tré Seals is the Founder of Vocal Type Co., a typeface foundry built by creatives of color that is working to diversify design. Frustrated by the overwhelmingly white, straight, and male world of graphic design, Tré launched Vocal in 2016 to help designers from underrepresented groups see more of "themselves" in the designs that permeate our culture.
The Charity: Campaign Zero (Los Angeles, CA)
Campaign Zero is a non-profit organization and national platform focused on ending police violence in the United States. The platform encourages policymakers in municipalities across the U.S. to focus on solutions with the strongest evidence of effectiveness at reducing police violence.
Over 1,000 people are killed by police every year in America. Campaign Zero calls on local, state, and federal lawmakers to take immediate action to adopt data-driven policy solutions to end this violence and hold police accountable. Funds donated to Campaign Zero support the analysis of policing practices across the country, research to identify effective solutions to end police violence, technical assistance to organizers leading police accountability campaigns, and the development of model legislation and advocacy to end police violence nationwide.
