About Us

Don't just make a statement -- make a difference.



All of our garments are 100% sweatshop free, guaranteed. Every piece in our line is designed in Seattle and professionally printed and shipped by our expert partners in California and North Carolina. All of our garments are sourced from suppliers whose factories are Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production certified. This means no child labor, no forced labor, and strict adherence to ethical production standards and local laws.


Every one of our shirts is individually printed with love. At the moment we are very busy (hello, election season!) so it is taking us 1-2 weeks to get your shirt printed, packed, and in the hands of USPS.


We want you to be happy with your purchase! If it doesn't quite right, no worries. We accept returns or exchanges within 30 days of purchase, as long as the garments are like new (unwashed and unworn). Just email cs@helloresistance.com and we'll take care of you. We are committed to delivering an awesome customer experience.


We genuinely love hearing from our customers. Got a design idea? Feedback? Just wondering about the story behind your favorite shirt? We would love to hear from you! Email us at cs@helloresistance.com.


Hello Resistance is a spinoff brand from the team at Free To Be Kids! We noticed some of our designs were pretty popular with grownups, and we also wanted to lean into the political stuff a little bit more with a grownups-only line. Both brands are based in Seattle and run by awesome humans. Here's our team, presented in the order that they came on board.

Courtney - CEO & Creative Director

Courtney Hartman - CEO at Free To Be KidsCourtney founded Free To Be Kids in July 2015. She is our marketing and business manager and chief shirt idea generator. She has an MBA from the University of Edinburgh and most recently spent seven years in various roles at Amazon before taking a leap of faith in 2016 to dedicate herself full time Free To Be Kids and later, in 2018, Hello Resistance as well. Her sweet and stylish eight-year-old boy and fearless, exuberant six-year-old girl inspire endless design ideas, and she can't believe how lucky she is to run a business she truly loves.
