There’s a New Pink Mural in NYC, and Its Message Is a Powerful One
With the help of @butlikemaybe, Planned Parenthood is continuing to fight back against the war on birth control.
There’s no doubt 2017 has been a pretty trying year, but the silver lining in disagreeing with nearly every move your government makes? The opportunity to fight for what you believe is right—and doing it loud and in large numbers, much like Planned Parenthood. Over the weekend, Planned Parenthood of New York City partnered with @butlikemaybe’s Arianna Margulis for what it describes as “a call to action around the current legal and political war on birth control from the current administration.” In other words, Margulis painted PP’s slogan in large, white bubble letters on top of a bright pink background in the First Street Green Art Park as part of the organization’s continued effort to fight back. A wide range of models, influencers, and artists also popped by to show their support and lend a helping hand.
We spoke with a few of those in attendance about why they felt it was important that they were there, and their answers ranged from political to personal to hopeful about the year ahead.
