Amplifier Foundation, Climate Prints, and Interference Archive host the next installment of our ongoing propaganda parties. What is a propaganda party? It’s where we invite dozens of organizations, activists, designers, and artists producing materials around a political issue together to hang out, meet each other, and distribute their flyers, stickers, posters, buttons, and more. All propaganda is FREE, and we encourage all to come by, grab a drink, and load up on as many posters and stickers you can carry—plus we’ll have live screenprinting!
