Sub Pop’s First Annual Juneteenth Fundraiser: The ‘Circulation of Education and Power’ T-Shirt

This exclusive limited edition T-shirt was designed by Seattle artist, Arel Watson. All net proceeds from the sale of this shirt will benefit The Seattle Artist Relief Fund organized by Ijeoma Oluo and LANGSTON, and will be directed specifically to Black artists who have applied for relief. If you’d like to learn more about the fund or make an additional donation please contact LANGSTON directly or visit

This shirt will only be available for purchase via Bandcamp and Sub Pop Mega Mart through July 3rd and will not start printing until the sale has concluded. We expect to start shipping roughly July 22nd.

While this donation will be specifically directed to Black artists, this fund is generally aimed at helping those artists in the greater Seattle arts community who have been financially impacted by cancellations due to COVID-19.

Where your funds go: 100% of these funds will go to Black artists who have lost income due to cancellations and work stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is emergency funding to help artists in need with rent, food, utilities, and medical needs.
