Modern art brand The Skateroom and Paul McCarthy, a Los Angeles-based contemporary artist, have just announced their second partnership focusing on skateboards in support of The Women's March. The profits from the collaborations are placed towards selected charity projects and art institutions that invest in encouraging children through art and skateboarding. This upcoming collaboration will have 20% put towards charitable programs such as, "Skateistan," "Skate and Create," "Back to School," as well as youth leadership and outreach in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The series of eight skateboards incorporate McCathy's drawings, created specifically for the 2017 Women's March. The pieces were originally drawn to be posters to support the march's cause, but The Skateroom have placed the visuals onto skateboards to help fund school systems and programs. The collaboration will be launching in Los Angeles at Hauser & Wirth.
