The New York Moratorium on Prison Construction and the National Moratorium on prisons produced this poster as part of a campaign to challenge plans to convert the dormitories being built for the athletes participating in the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York into a state prison. This poster made legal history when it successfully survived a lawsuit by the U.S. Olympic Committee to prohibit this unauthorized use of the Olympic logo.
