About The Change Project

The Change Project is a national LGBTQ arts and advocacy organization that elevates the voices of LGBTQ people through supporting queer communities in under-resourced areas of the US. Our signature program is to help change the world by producing t-shirts & apparel. The driving force behind our t-shirt production is to employ LGBTQ artists, organizers, and activists to support them and their work. We also utilize this platform to fundraise for other world changing organizations that meet the criteria of our passion on how to change the world. What’s so special about The Change Project? We make some of the most creative & fashion forward t-shirts on the market.  We are a young non-profit composed of smart, driven teammates committed to constantly improving our work.  We seek to maintain and grow a strong team that prioritizes the needs of our donors and the people we serve in a personable and efficient way.
