Let’s talk progressive 4th of July tees. We feature cool flag tees and clothing of all kinds every summer, but this year in particular, there are a whole lot of people looking to celebrate the best of what this country can be and should be.
“Freedom for all” is not an ideal we’re taking for granted this year, even as we set off fireworks or barbecue with neighbors in our backyards.
So I sought out these inspiring, welcoming, progressive 4th of July tees for kids and adults that make a statement about the America I’m choosing to celebrate this year: The one that welcomes immigrants, values Black lives, proclaims that love is love, and knows that American diversity is our greatest strength, Because when you love something, like I love the USA, you want to make it better.

Our friend Christine Koh, designer behind the Brave New World Etsy Shop, was responsible the iconic Maxine Waters reclaiming my time tee that we featured in this year’s holiday gift guide — but all her designs are amazing and help support great causes. Her latest: the bold “America Is…” progressive 4th of July tee, which describes so many of the beautiful things about our country and donates 20% of the profits to Americares. This tee is limited edition (so hurry!) and it only comes in adult sizes, but I know some intelligent, tough, inclusive, brave teens who would love rocking it, right along with their moms.
