Established in 2007, READ Movement is an artful message campaign designed to promote the love of education, one impression at a time. At READ, we believe that art has the power to cultivate change. With every dollar spent, we will donate to a nonprofit organization that values learning, love and equality above all else.
We have chosen to donate a portion our proceeds for 2020 to Justice Studio, a nonprofit organization based in St. Petersburg, Florida.

About Justice Studio
Justice Studio is the in-house art studio program at two Tampa Bay Area juvenile detention facilities. It began when artists from NOMADstudio learned that youth in detention had no free access to writing, drawing, or art materials during their time in custody. The NOMAD team agreed that detained youth in particular need an outlet for creative expression. Three days a week the team opens the studio, providing youth with the tools, supplies, and guidance to work on independent and group art projects. It is supported entirely by donations.
