The company that produced this badge, Donnelly/Colt Progressive Resources was founded in 1975 in America as a small, family-owned business that provides social justice materials and buttons for consciousness raising and fundraising. Their first bumper sticker was "Jail to the Ex-Chief", in reference to Richard Nixon resigning as President and their low-tech equipment forced them to make items one at a time. Nowadays, this company is one of America's oldest producers of such material. They have been involved in many movements for social change over the past decades.
