SwayLove is a California based organization that advocates on behalf of Pit Bulls, all shelter dogs, positive shelter reform, community engagement and transparency, and against any form of breed-specific legislation. These efforts include, but are not limited to, photography, journalism, educational video production, attending and speaking at City Council meetings and other functions, and trying to be a positive example as an activist for these causes.

This shirt attempts to signify some of the many ills that are being promoted when a politician attempts to ban or regulate a breed or "type" of dog on the back of a tragic incident that may occur. "Pit Bulls" are primarily the chief victims of such legislation, which is always brought forth with the intent of sweepingly vilifying a massive group of dogs (millions) that can't even be properly identified, as there's never a consistent definition to what is or isn't a Pit Bull. Further, it implies that your dog is guilty of something that it never did, and simply because of the way that it looks. This legislation and the rhetoric that comes with it perpetuates all types of negative stereotypes that oftentimes ends in broken families. Innocent dogs are scapegoated and honest public safety measures go ignored.

By purchasing this shirt you are not only helping me and showing an appreciation for my cause, but more importantly, standing against the injustice of dog and owner profiling. Every time this shirt is worn it just might give someone you have never met an opportunity to ponder the issue, even for a brief moment. It could plant a seed in their mind, it might lead to a question, but it will always be a tool for publicly standing up for all dogs.

Much like other fundraisers, if the "goal" is reached within the allotted time frame then the shirts will be shipped shortly thereafter. If not, your payment will not be processed and nothing further will happen. If the goal is ultimately reached other people can still continue to order until the campaign closes. I'd obviously like to sell as many shirts as possible and assist in multiplying this message around the United States and elsewhere. Thank you for your time.
