TUBMAN over Jackson

 

Originally designed by NYC artist Dano Wall, the Harriet Tubman Stamp has become the new “face” for artistic activism. In response to the recent postponement of Tubman replacing Jackson on the $20, popularity for this stamp has increased. The original image for this stamp comes from a carte-de-visite portrait of Harriet Tubman taken by Benjamin Powelson in Auburn, New York in 1868, currently the earliest known photograph of her.

 

 

Get Your Stamp

Tubman Over Jackson

Dano Wall has set a goal to stamp as many $20 bills in circulation as possible. We have decided to join in with our 20+ years of experience creating stamps for money; projects including the currency tracking site WheresGeorge.com and Ben & Jerrys political movement to get money out of politics called the Stamp Stampede.  

How You Can Get Involved

Our stamp is made with high quality photopolymer and offered on two types of mounts; Self-Inking Stamp and Acrylic Mount Stamp. Both mounts have been designed to ensure a precise impression on every bill; the Acrylic Stamp has a round notch that lines up with the Federal Seal and the Self Inking Stamp is lined up to use the border of the bill for proper placement. 

Who was Andrew Jackson?

In the war of 1812, Major Jackson rose to fame when led the defeat of the British in New Orleans.  As the seventh President, Jackson came to the office with an overwhelming popular vote with a platform based on direct representation. 

He was a supporter of ending the electoral college and chose to utlize his veto power instead of following Congress with policy making decisions.

Who was Harriet Tubman?

Harriet was born into slavery in 1822.  Following her personal escape she chose to return enabling some 70 others to escape over 13 trips with the help of the Underground Railroad.   

During the Civil War she participated as an scout and spy for the U.S. Army.  She was active in the Womens’ Suffrage Movement.  

She has become an icon of courage and freedom.

 

What is the US Treasury Doing?

In 2016 the Obama Administration announced that Tubman would replace Jackson in time for the 100th Anniversary of Womens’ Suffrage on the $20 dollar bill.  Now Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says that the bills redesign will not hit circulation until 2028 at the soonest.   For those who still want to celebrate Womens’ Suffrage and Harriet Tubman an inexpensive rubber stamp can help to expedite the timeline.   

Is it LEGAL?

Yes, it is legal legal to stamp or write on money.  The law simply states that it’s only illegal to deface currency “with the intent to render the bill unfit to be reissued.” Since our goal is to have Harriet in  circulation, it’s legal. The United States is one of the only countries with this viewpoint and it enables us to share our political insights with our hard earned money.  

Harriet Tubman

Nicknamed “Moses”, Tubman led groups of slaves to freedom with the help of the Underground Railroad.  She also facilitated former slaves to compete with the waves of poor Irish immigrants for work in the North.  Since the Fugitive Slave Law transformed many Northern States into increasing hostile areas many fled to Southern Ontario for relief.  

Tubman’s dangerous endeavers required spunk and ingenuity rarely seen before in women let alone women of color in an age that the practice of slavery was common place.  She used the inclement weather of winter to reduce the odds of being seen and discovered.

#HarrietTubman is already appearing on $20 bills whether #Trump officials like it or not. 🙌
⬇️
Minutes after Treasury Secretary #StevenMnuchin said Wednesday that he was delaying the new Harriet Tubman $20 bill until 2028, a New York designer tweeted: “We’ll see about that.”
⬇️
#DanoWall, 33, has created a 3-D stamp that can be used to superimpose a portrait of Tubman over Andrew Jackson’s on $20 bills. Wall said he has sold out of the stamps and is hurrying to produce more. “My goal is to get 5,000 stamps out there,” said Wall. “If there are 5,000 people consistently stamping currency, we could get a significant percent of circulating $20 bills [with the Tubman] stamp, at which point it would be impossible to ignore.”
⬇️
Jackson, the nation’s seventh commander in chief, was a slave owner. Tubman, who escaped slavery on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, helped lead hundreds of people to freedom along the Underground Railroad. “Putting Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill would have constituted a monumental symbolic change, disrupting the pattern of white men who appear on our bills," he said, "and, by putting her on the most popular note currently in circulation, indicates exactly what kind of a life we choose to celebrate; what values we, as a country, most hope to emulate. Harriet Tubman’s unparalleled grit, intelligence, and bravery over the course of her long life certainly make her worthy of such an honor."

The Trump administration may have put the brakes on $20 bills bearing Harriet Tubman’s image, but a Brooklyn artist has come up with a #3D stamp that can provide a clever workaround—if you want it. As Jasmine Weber writes for HyperAllergic, artist #DanoWall was inspired to create the stamp after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced last year that the Treasury was no longer “focused” on adding #HarrietTubman to the $20 bill. In 2016, the Obama administration laid out a new plan for the denomination that would have #Tubman replacing famed ethnic cleansing enthusiast Andrew Jackson (he would, however, still be on the back of the bill). The proposal drew mixed reviews, as Weber notes. Online, people expressed enthusiasm for having a Tubman $20—which would make her both the first black person and the first woman to be featured on U.S. paper #currency. But the fact that the iconic abolitionist would share a note with Jackson, who helped enact the mass genocide of Native Americans, left many underwhelmed. Still others noted the U.S. economy’s long, tangled history with racism, which began with chattel slavery. To have Tubman honored on a symbol of U.S. capitalism felt inappropriate, and some wondered whether Harriet herself would approve of the idea. But with Wall’s stamp, the currency can become a pseudo-reality; for those interested in the stamp (because you gotta spend that money anyway, I suppose), it can be downloaded and printed off Thingiverse. And yes, it’s perfectly legal for you to stamp your money—you just can’t burn, shred, or otherwise destroy it. “I would like to see Tubman $20s entering circulation in sufficient numbers to generate conversation about the proposed, now abandoned, plan to replace Andrew Jackson with her,” Wall told HyperAllergic. He added that he wants to make 100-200 more Tubman stamps “to circulate as gifts, museum donations, or prizes,” and is also considering using them to raise money for #civilrights advocacy organization the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you for your bravery in both word and action... "There is nothing wrong with a traffic law which says you have to stop for a red light. But when a fire is raging, the fire truck goes right through that red light, and normal traffic had better get out of its way. Or, when a man is bleeding to death, the ambulance goes through those red lights at top speed. ... Disinherited people all over the world are bleeding to death from deep social and economic wounds. They need brigades of ambulance drivers who will have to ignore the red lights of the present system until the emergency is solved. Massive civil disobedience is a strategy for social change which is at least as forceful as an ambulance with its siren on full." ("From Strength to Love"
Also please check out the local campaign here in Saint Louis to closetheworkhouse.
The campaign aims to STOP mass incarceration, without legitimizing or justifying the continued caging of people as punishment. Calling for the closure of the Medium Security Institute, better known in St. Louis as the 'Workhouse', and seeking an end to wealth based pretrial detention, and the reinvestment of the money used to cage poor people and Black people and through it all rebuilding the most impacted neighborhoods in this region.

The age of the individual must end – our world depends on it⁣

The costs of a culture focused on an illusory idea of personal autonomy are making us ill and heating our planet. But a new age may be dawning⁣

Having a strong sense of self can be useful, but excessive individualism has its costs. The more we see ourselves as discrete entities, the more likely we are to feel isolated and lonely and to show “selfish” behaviours. As a consequence, rates of anxiety and depression are rising across the world, while the climate and biodiversity crises deepen ever further.⁣

Yet times are changing. In the last decade, we may have seen individualism peak. Scientific discoveries have revealed how the perception of a distinct self is an illusion. Our bodies are made from materials that were once parts of countless other organisms, from ancient plants to dinosaurs. Most of our 37tn cells are directed by a genetic code that is a shared heritage not just of humanity but all of life on Earth. You might think your life experiences define you, but the neural networks in your brain that encode these are changing constantly – you are not even the same person you were when you started reading this article. And the new science of social networks shows how we are linked together so closely that ideas, behaviours and preferences flow between us in a way that makes it unclear where one mind ends and another begins.⁣

And people are finding new value in being part of groups, whether it is through activism (Extinction Rebellion, youth strikes, political party memberships) or leisure activities (book clubs, festivals, park runs). New research shows that when people have a broader sense of group identity (for example viewing themselves as global citizens, rather than embracing nationalism), they tend to be more likely to engage in pro-environmental behaviours, such as reducing their carbon emissions, buying sustainably and volunteering. A new age of collectivism seems to be dawning – and not a moment too soon.⁣
