Printed ephemera from, Voters Not Politicians, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and Penelope Tsernoglou for State Representative. A small handmade sign is included in the collection, donated by Courtney Smith, with "PERSIST" and icons of a fist raised as part of the women's gender symbol on one side and voter registration information on the other.
