FIREWORKS GRAPHICS was a collective of activist printers and artists that existed in the 1970s and 1980s. It grew out of the anti-imperialist activist work that was being done by Prairie Fire Organizing Committee (PFOC) in the 1970's.
From the FIREWORKS GRAPHICS history and archive website: "Our posters are a visual history of what was going on. Our mission was to agitate, organize, and to bring awareness of the inequalities and social justice issues of the times...Fireworks members in San Francisco and Los Angeles designed and distributed over 150 posters, which reflected and supported various social struggles...We were a collective and the production of all our posters was a group process of discussing the issue to organize around, what the poster should say, and the graphic image to be used...Most importantly, all the members of Fireworks were both artists and organizers."
