Agencies of Change: 2019 Poster Show

In April, we had our first Agencies of Change event and were blown away by all the support from our sponsors, participants, and community. Together we were able to put on an amazing Poster Show during Design Week Portland and raise awareness for Trans Lifeline.

Trans Lifeline is a national trans-led nonprofit that provides essential services and advocacy for the transgender community. From microgrants to a peer support hotline, this organization is known for being there when they’re needed most.

Resilience & Resistance Poster Show

We’re so grateful for everyone’s excitement and involvement in our “Resilience & Resistance” Poster Show where we were able to feature posters from a variety of agencies, designers, and trans artists. Each person involved in this show, from attendees to participants, helped to raise money for Trans Lifeline and awareness about the complex issues facing our transgender community today.

And an extra special thanks to Kerry from Trans Lifeline, who came to speak about the nonprofit’s key services and how everyone supporting this event was impacting the organization.

We at Murmur appreciate all the designers, agencies, attendees, and sponsors who made this event possible. We are happy to report that we raised $3,500 in poster sales and donations and, with your help, we hope to raise more!

The remaining limited edition posters are still for sale on our Agencies of Change website so we can continue to raise funds for Trans Lifeline. Check out our online Poster Shop. Help us spread the word by sharing this link with friends and family who weren’t able to make the show!
