Lena Simonne is the French model everyone talks about. She is also a young woman committed to humanitarian projects. After a collection organized with Réseau Entou- rage, she is committed alongside Utopia 56 in favor of migrants and refugees. It is an opportunity to put her in- fluence at the service of causes that are particularly close to her heart. Today, Lena joins the EACH X OTHER cre- ative community to bring the WE CAME IN PEACE project to life. EACH X OTHER invites Lena Simonne to design a t-shirt in her image. Wanting to use her influence to come to the aid of migrants and refugees, the model chose a very simple typography to convey a powerful message. “WE CAME IN PEACE” not only means that we are all migrants, nomads “foreign born” but also that to progress we must learn to live together as brothers, as Martin Lu- ther King wrote. Instead of erecting walls, we should bond, build bridges across borders. This is precisely what Lena Simonne and EACH X OTHER are doing by committing themselves alongside the association UTOPIA 56 to which 50% of the profits will be paid. The WE CAME IN PEACE t-shirts will only be available online. The sale will take place for a week, from July 6 to 12. T-shirts are 35 euros each.
UTOPIA 56 Utopia 56 is a citizens’ association that helps refugees and migrants on the ground. Since 2016, it has provided them with material, legal and administrative support. More than 150 volunteers are mobilized every day for numerous missions in Calais, Grande-Synthe, Lille, Paris, Rennes, Toulouse and Tours. Their actions: guaranteeing access to healthcare, helping with the distribution of meals, or- ganizing citizen and solidarity accommodation, providing legal aid and encouraging awareness among citizens.
