Artists vs. Walmart

CultureStrike has teamed up with OUR Walmart’s Black Friday Protests initiative to release graphics in solidarity with the courageous workers who are standing up to their employer.  Over the course of November 2014, CultureStrike will be releasing an image every weekday, commissioned from 20 different artists whose work sheds light on how Walmart’s greedy game hurts workers and the environment.
This holiday season, Walmart workers from all over the country are calling on Walmart to publicly commit to raise pay to $15 an hour and provide full-time work. While the Waltons build $16 billion in annual profits, the majority of Walmart workers are paid less than $25,000 a year—and are unable to support their families!
The graphics shame Walmart’s exploitative practices while uniting artists, workers, and conscious consumers to stand with low wage workers. If Walmart does not respond, community members and workers will bring protests—and our graphics—to Walmart stores on Black Friday, one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

A Message from CultureStrike Executive Director Sham-e-Ali Nayeem

"It is through art and culture that we are able to shift our collective consciousness and transform this grim political climate we find ourselves in. There is a significant cost our communities pay when we are not the ones uplifting our own truths. We have a tremendous opportunity to strengthen our creative alliances and shift cultural narratives that harm us. I invite us all to imagine the kind of world we wish to see and assert the safety and dignity of our communities." Donate Now!
