Check out Duncan Channon’s new, important ‘Suppress This’ campaign for Vote From Home 2020 – an organization that’s working to empower ‘dual risk voters’ of color, who face higher risks of COVID-19 and voter disenfranchisement, to vote by mail this November.

The work is particularly relevant at a moment when voter suppression, United States Postal Service issues and the pandemic’s impact on US elections are making headlines. The campaign, developed pro bono by Duncan Channon, positions mail-in voting as the way for at-risk Black and brown voters to give the middle finger to those in power who would benefit from their absence at the polls. The creative features portraits of Black and brown Americans shot by POC photographers Darius Riley and Andrea Granera, while highlighting the mail-in ballot as the solve for voting challenges from both systematic suppression and COVID-19.

Duncan Channon also secured the media for ‘Suppress This’ – 100 percent of which is being donated by media properties including Roku, Buzzfeed, Pandora, Vevo, among others.
