The Voice Project pairs people like Johnny Depp, Peter Gabriel, and Tom Morello with artists, writers, and musicians who are political prisoners in their home countries. What they do with the pairings is combine the prisoners' mug shot information with photos of those who are championing them, and put the images on t-shirts, which they sell to raise funds. The goal is to raise awareness of free expression and free speech, and show that you can, and should, speak out if your government tries to take away your rights.

 I find this project timely, welcome, and am fully aware that this could happen here like never before. We have right now a President-Elect who could take our rights away and make the US into something repulsive. We can’t let that happen. So if you like this project, like me, and buy one of the shirts, you’re doing more than buying a shirt. You’re speaking out against injustice at a time when we really need to.
