"Justice"

$30.00

Ella Rose Whitaker is a multi-faceted independent makeup artist, designer, and freelance photographer based in Austin, Texas. Ella's many talents involve a great deal of personal interaction within her community. Through photoshoots, makeup work, or design commissions, Ella is able to make deep connections with her fellow Austin-ites one person at a time.

The pandemic may have altered the way these interactions take place, but given her experience it's no surprise that Ella was able to tap into the pulse of her community for her powerful bandana design. Receiving 235 of just over 1,000 official votes, Ella's "Justice" design was chosen as one of two winners in our "Community Collection" design contest in June of 2020.

We're excited to introduce the world to Ella and her work, and can't wait to see more from this incredibly talented Texan in the years to come!

Ella's contest-winning design pays tribute to the historic ways in which communities around the world came together in 2020 to demand and create much needed change in the way our society is currently structured. Like many of us, Ella was inspired and motivated by the ways in which people across our seemingly divided country banded together this year to protest inequality and injustice. In Ella's words, "My community has shown me that when enough people come together, unprecedented change for the good can occur."

Ella's layered illustration details a massive crowd in protest, much like the many that took place across the U.S. in the wake of George Floyd's murder. The circular focus of the design features breaking-of-chains imagery, impactful words, and the rising sun of a new day, all of which Ella hopes will inspire her community (and communities across the world) to continue gathering and fighting for change.   

Established ion 1940 under the leadership of Thurgood Marshall, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (NAACP LDF) is America's premier non-profit legal organization fighting for racial justice through litigation, advocacy, and public education.

LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also tirelessly defends the gains and protections won over the past 80 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments.

LDF was launched at a time when the nation’s aspirations for equality and due process of law were stifled by widespread state-sponsored racial inequality. From that era to the present, LDF’s mission has always been transformative: to achieve racial justice, equality, and an inclusive society.
