May 31, 2024: Amazing New York Activation for the FINAL IMPACT Campaign for the ERA
May 31, 2024 Robert Wood


We’ve been busy all spring planting the seeds of change, and today we are thrilled to share
how those seeds have blossomed into the FINAL IMPACT Campaign for the ERA.
With the help and support of incredible allies from the art world, celebrity supporters, and YOU,
the dream of legal equality is truly within our grasp.

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL officially launched the FINAL IMPACT campaign in NYC at the world famous FOCUS Art Fair.

Over a dozen incredible artists, including icons like Shepard Fairey, Ellen von Unwerth, Spencer Tunick and Roberto Dutesco donated exquisite pieces of art to be featured and sold to help us bring FINAL IMPACT to battleground states across the nation ahead of the November election.

In addition to our incredible art being featured on every floor of the fair,our friends at FOCUS let us take over the entire front of the building and rooftop with the worldwide community art project, INSIDE OUT, created by French artist JR.
