MZ Wallace x Lingua Franca
for She Should Run & Higher Heights Leadership Fund
The third in a special collaborative series, this limited edition Metro Tote Deluxe brings awareness to the need for more women — and racial equality — in political leadership.
This Metro Tote Deluxe is emblazoned with the phrase "give a damn" in Lingua Franca's signature embroidery — strong language that represents an important cause.
100% of the net proceeds from the sale of this special Metro Tote will support She Should Run, a non-partisan organization that supports women running for office, and Higher Heights Leadership Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to strengthening Black women’s leadership capacity and civic participation.
"Getting more women into office is important, but it's not enough. The conversation must include and support racial diversity if we hope to elect a government that is truly representative of its people."
— Monica Zwirner, MZ Wallace cofounder & designer
“Change doesn’t happen alone — we all have to get involved, we all have to give a damn.”
— Lucy Wallace Eustice, cofounder & designer, MZ Wallace
