Shirt Sale Donations: Village Enterprise Fund and the ACLU

When we started selling shirts to help cover the costs of running the Irregular Times website, we decided to print only on shirts that are made in the USA because, despite all the attempts to erode worker rights, American textile workers still have better wages, more rights and more workplace protections than workers in overseas [...]

Domestic and International Donations: ACLU and Charity:Water

Whenever someone buys one of our sweatshop-free shirts at Skreened, we set aside a dollar to donate to a domestic political cause and another dollar to donate to charity for overseas assistance.

Government Transparency on Warrantless Wiretapping, Obama Style

Three years ago, I stumbled across a new political effort called GOOOH. Pronounced “Go,” GOOOH is an acronym standing for Get Out Of Our House, and in 2010 it is still GOOOHing. The GOOOal: to replace all 435 current members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012 with new representatives chosen in a distinct [...]

Political Donation: American Civil Liberties Union

When you buy a sweatshop-free t-shirt from Irregular Times, you do more than spread a liberal message across your chest. You help support liberal causes, too. For every shirt we sell, we donate a dollar to a worthy liberal cause.

In November of 2009, Antonio Musumeci was arrested and repeatedly harassed by Department of Homeland [...]

If you’re miffed that House Judiciary Chair John Conyers, despite a year and a month’s time to do so, failed to forge Patriot Act reform during the 111th Congress —

Stage Set for ACLU-Homeland Security Fusion Center Debate

Man, I wish I could be there to watch. The Bill of Rights Defense Committee has organized a debate between Mike German (former FBI agent and current counsel at the ACLU) and David Gersten and Juliette Kayyem of the Department of Homeland Security.

The topic of this debate: Fusion Centers. The BORDC frames the [...]
