Dare to Speak is a mantra that speaks to the core of PEN America's mission centered on the use of free speech wisely, but also boldly, to drive forward discourse, communicate across differences and voice even controversial ideas and viewpoints. The message, used by PEN America CEO Suzanne Nossel as the title of her 2020 book Dare to Speak: Defending Free Speech for All, is an uplifting call to speak truth, find your voice and connect with others through the power of saying what is on your mind and hearing out others.
All Lingua Franca pieces are hand embroidered once your order is placed. Please allow 2-to-3 weeks for embroidery, plus shipping time (1-5 days).

Our classic crewneck runs true-to-size with a relaxed fit, not meant to be worn tight. Many of our customers like to size up for a more casual, comfortable fit. If you prefer a more tailored fit, we suggest sizing down.
