Check out Emily McDowell Studio’s site for spiffy Resistance-Friendly merchandise that includes tote bags, pins, and more.

McDowell gets much-deserved praise for her perfectly phrased greeting cards, which say things like, “When life gives you lemons, I won’t tell you a story about my cousin’s friend who died of lemons,” and “I’m so sorry you’re sick. I want you to know that I will never try to sell you on some random treatment I read about on the internet.”

After the election McDowell came up with Resistance-friendly stuff such as tote bags that say, “My American Values: Equality, Justice, Empathy, Science” and “Chose Hope Over Fear.” She also has a line of Everyday Bravery Pins that say things like, “Unfriended a Racist,” “Stayed Nasty,” and “Stopped Caring About Bullshit.”
