According to the duo’s website, five shirts are available at the Run The Jewels’ U.S. store. Proceeds go to The Task Force, NARAL, The Bail Project, The National Immigration Forum and the ACLU. Each charity is specific to each shirt chosen. There is also a print available benefiting Racial Justice NOW. Each shirt is $30 and the print $45.

Though the announcement encouraged voting in the U.S. Election, the group’s U.K. store also features four of the limited edition tees, according to Brooklyn Vegan. The shirts on the U.K. website benefit Colours Youth Network, IMKAAN, FareShare and 4FrontProject. The same print benefits MigrantHelp.

Following the announcement from the group, Killer Mike took to Twitter to promote the tees, sharing the hashtag #PlotPlanStrategizeMobilizeAndOrganize. 

Run The Jewels have been active as a duo since 2013 when they released their self-titled album. Prior to the debut, Killer Mike and El-P collaborated with each other producing, featuring and touring, according to Rolling Stone. Their latest release, RTJ4, came June 2020.
