With the recent travel ban (though it is currently on hold) and women continuing to fight an uphill battle, a lot of folks have been wondering what they can do to make an impact. Thankfully, even if you can’t go to protests or marches in person, there are other ways to pitch in. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU have had donations pouring in from people who want to help — and you can even show your support by stocking your closet. Check out these brands that are donating their proceeds to organizations like PP and ACLU.
1. Opening Ceremony’s Action Capsule ($65+): New York label Opening Ceremony recently announced their collection of statement tops, of which 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the ACLU. Tanks and tees are available now, and hoodies can be pre-ordered. (Photo via Opening Ceremony)
2. Zosia Mamet x Y7 Studio Colossus Tee ($40): Zosia Mamet teamed up with Y7 Studio to produce a badass tee depicting our Lady Liberty practicing yoga. “We are a country founded by immigrants. Humans who fled to a new land in search of a fresh start. New York historically has been a beacon of that fresh start, a safe haven. Lady liberty standing tall in open water welcoming those looking for home,” the Girls star said. “‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free.’ These shirts are a symbol of that, a reminder of what this city stands for, what it means to be a New Yorker and an American. ‘Mother of exiles. From her beacon-hand glows world wide welcome.'” One hundred percent of the profits from this shirt go to the ACLU. The shirt is currently sold out, but we definitely anticipate it restocking soon.

3. Wildfang’s Feminist Collection ($32+): Self-proclaimed band of “modern-day, female Robin Hoods,” Wildfang just released a collection geared toward representing your badass babe status. The best part is 10 percent of the proceeds from this collection go to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. (Photo via Wildfang)
4. Paravel’s Causes Initiative ($75+): Paravel’s new collection of accessories are hand-painted by Harlem-based graffiti artist Shaun Crawford. For every item sold, 10 percent of the profits from this collection go to the ACLU, because in the ACLU’s mission to protect civil rights, it is also fighting to protect freedom of travel. You can pre-order online starting Thursday, February 9. (Photo via Paravel)
