Reflecting on a Dream

      In the past, Ellens has worked with the cities of Los Angeles and Pasadena to make shirts celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our desire to recognize a truly great man is no less than in years past, but this year MLK Day falls in the midst of truly unprecedented social challenges and pressures. We are caught between the fires of a deadly pandemic, political unrest and the inauguration of a new President along with the cries for social justice in communities across the nation. 

      Dr. King’s message was one of love triumphing over hate, peace over war and strife, and it is in that spirit that we take to heart his words, “Hate is too great a burden to bear, I choose to love.” The times we find ourselves in make another of his famous quotes even more prescient: “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” On this 18th day of January, 2021 we hope you will join us in reflecting on a true American hero’s dream of peace and cooperation amongst all our citizens.

We All Know How Important Voting Is…

We all know that we have an important civic duty to wear a mask and a valued right to vote. That’s why here at Ellen’s Silkscreening we are giving away a FREE “vote” face mask with every order placed from now until Election Day. We hope to remind everyone of the importance of wearing masks and casting their ballot.
