  • "Passion in Translation" Unisex Tee
    T-Shirt/Apparel

    The "Passion in Translation" tee is designed to capture the range of meanings 'passion' carries around the world. While it can mean devotion and desire, passion can also translate to rage and anger. Third Root believes some movements require a combination of all these emotions to create lasting change. The tee invites all to consider five translations of passion: English, Spanish, Arabic, Yoruba, Filipino, and Swahili. In whatever way you've found yourself immersed in the fight for justice and liberation, commit to move with passion. There's no time left for passive or half-hearted activism.


    Printed on a soft, 4.3oz 100% Combed Ring-Spun shirt.
