Part of Migration Now portfolio compiled by Justseeds and CultureStrike; artist's signature on verso. Description from Portfolio: Crisis’ piece “With or Without Papers, We Will Always Be Illegal” is about being an immigrant. “Being an immigrant means to be brave enough to dare, to risk our lives, to risk our freedom, to make substantial changes, to fight for the choices we made,” Crisis said. “Struggle doesn't need permission, doesn't need a license, doesn't need their laws. This poster is for all those who dare every day.”
