Nasty Women 'reclaim' U.S. flag, design goes viral



Stories of Portlanders motivated to take action after Donald Trump's presidential victory in November are common. But one local group has become particularly visible with its signs showing a redesign of the American flag.

Within the flag are eight lines of type that include statements such as "immigrants and refugees are welcome," "women are in charge of their bodies," and "love wins." They're planted in lawns, taped to storefront windows, and posted on billboards all around the city, and now spreading are elsewhere.

The signs are a project of Nasty Women Get Shit Done PDX a ragtag group of ladies who weren't about to spend any time sulking after Trump's election. In the eight months since the election, the Nasty Women have raised and donated $47,000 for a range of causes, from fighting racism to addressing homelessness.

The group secured 501(c)4 nonprofit status, which doesn't allow for tax-deductible contributions but does afford them the power to lobby and endorse political candidates.
