More than 150 photographers and artists are coming together in States of Change, an online print sale fundraiser in support of local groups working on the ground in five key swing states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. In this crucial election in the United States, every vote counts, and these artists are committed to convincing people to go out and vote. If you want a print by artists like Alec Soth, Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha, Nan Goldin, Steve McCurry or Sally Mann, you have time until October 18th!

“There’s the prevailing sense that the country and our democracy are spinning out of control, and that we are powerless to stop it,” says the team behind the fundraiser. “We didn’t want to become resigned to a sense of darkness and had to act. Inspired by the change artists made with the Pictures for Elmhurst project, we decided to band together to support these amazing non-profits. Every dollar we donate will make a real and direct impact on voter turnout.” So what is the goal behind this?

Organized in partnership with Movement Voter Project, which works “to strengthen progressive power at all levels of government by helping donors support the best and most promising local community-based organizations,” States of Change aims to raise money for forty-two organizations with a focus on youth and communities of color that work “to get out the vote, fight voter suppression, organize communities to grow their power and build infrastructure that will lead to lasting change.” So go through their website, choose your favourite print(s), and help the cause!
