Not For Sale Media Project
The Not For Sale Media Project is a mobilization of
feminist media makers and grassroots activists that are creatively
challenging the mass media’s normalization of prostitution,
pornography, and other forms of sexual abuse through the creation and
distribution of alternative media. We are creating alternative forms of
media that encourage individuals and communities to think more
critically about the buying and selling of women’s bodies; the
commodification of sex and sexuality; impacts on individuals and groups
of people; and alternative visions of sex and sexuality free of power
abuse, violence, and hierarchy.
The Not For Sale Media Project is
currently embarking on the creation of posters that raise awareness on
issues of prostitution, pornography, and trafficking. The posters are
8.5″ x 14″ or 11″ x 17″ in size and are being utilized for public and
community education. View some of the posters below. We encourage you
to download, print, and circulate them in your own community.
Join our efforts! You do not have to be an artist or graphic designer to take part in the Not For Sale Media Project.
The only requirement is that you have a commitment to raising public
awareness about the harms of prostitution, pornography, and
trafficking. For those interested, design and create a 8.5″ x 14″ or
11″ x 17″ poster that educates the public on the realities and harms of
prostitution, pornography, and/or trafficking. If you have an idea but
don’t know how to turn it into a finished poster, we can help out.
Share your posters and ideas with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail at P.O. Box 674, Northampton, MA 01061, USA.
