"07-0209-075" handwritten in graphite on top right corner, verso.

Multi-color poster shows a graphic on the top half of the page framed in a blue single line border. A two-headed figure with an American flag on its chest stands above a syringe and holds a hat in one hand and a severed head in the other. Text above the figure reads, "Execution 2000." Bold text below the image reads, "The Killer Race." A paragraph that begins with an enlarged letter 'T' discusses the presidential campaign and the race between George W. Bush, Al Gore, and Ralph Nader. "Abolish State Genocide Now!!! Vote Nader for President" appears below the paragraph at bottom center. Vertical text printed along the right side of the image discusses Citizens to Elect Our Public Defender and notes the print is an art/law collaboration between poster maker Doug Minkler and Attorney Aram James. Vertical text printed along the left side of the image dedicates the print in memory of Rose Elizabeth Bird who was the first woman appointed to the California Supreme Court and a Public Defender in Santa Clara County.
