Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo


#takecareof was created on the night of the 2016 Election. Scared and terrified about the Trump Presidency, worried about the people in our community that will be directly effected by the cabinet, this list was created as a direct action to name the people in our community that we must care for. The original #takecareof form was the text written with sharpie on shirts, then it became a screen print.

#takecareof posters will distributed free at Untitled, San Francisco with exhibitor SOMArts Cultural Center (San Francisco).
