The collection features words like "DEFY" and "FIGHT."

In a moving ballet this past Sunday,Opening Ceremony debuted its new ACTION capsule collection. The production, titled The Times Are Racing, took place at David H. Koch Theater and was performed by the New York City Ballet--all organized by OC Co-Founder Humberto Leon.

One-hundred percent of sales from OC's capsule, comprised of tees, tanks and hoodies, will benefit ACLU--an appropriate relationship, considering protest verbs like "DEFY" and "FIGHT" are featured on OC's graphic pieces. This language "captures the essence of what it means to be an American," OC wrote on Instagram about the collection, which references late '80s, early '90s style, when AIDS crisis protests were in full force.

This weekend, Sia announced she would match up to $100k in donations to the ACLU for her queer and immigrant friends, followed by other celebrities, including Rosie O'Donnell and Judd Apatow. In total, the ACLU received $24.2 million in online contributions over the weekend, over six times their normal annual sum.

OC's ACTION capsule is now available for purchase, here.
