In these post-Trump times, it's sometimes difficult to stay positive about the world while holding onto the belief that everything is still going to turn out all right in the end. But if your faith in humanity has been compromised due to recent events, then remember there are still decent people out there: people like the Brujas skate crew from the Bronx who are making conscientious streetwear perfect for these apocalyptic days.

The all-female skate crew is featured in a new piece with GQ where they're described as "community organizers, radical feminists, epic party-throwers, and emerging voices in the political-art space." Brujas emerged back in 2014, having become disillusioned with the "white male-dominated skate culture they kept encountering in the city."

In recent times, Brujas established the 1971 merch line that was directly inspired by the year of the Attica prisoner uprising. The range features graphic tees and shorts, with all proceedings raised through Brujas's Kickstarter dedicated to anti-prison advocacy. “We see 1971 as a combination of both the political DIY cultures that we were radicalized in in the Lower East Side, anarchist organizing where people sell T-shirts and throw parties to get their friends out of prison, and the really brash street and skate wear aesthetics that have been developing for ages,” is how Brujas member Izzy Nastasia describes the collection.

Those looking to cop the socially switched-on garb can do so at the Brujas Kickstarter page.

In other altruistic streetwear news, HypePeace is the London brand showing solidarity with Palestine.
