  About Us. 

  Helen-Sage Lee 

  Rachel Lee  

hi, we're Helen and Rachel Lee, co-founders of PRISM.

we're identical twins, professional changemakers who've traveled thousands of miles

on buses and trains to fight injustice, and lovers of beautiful design. 

throughout our work fighting the “Pink Tax” and promoting women’s rights, we've traveled across the nation, prepping for legislative hearings while watching the early morning sunrise, getting ready for press conferences in Amtrak bathrooms, and interviewing for Teen Vogue at the steps of the Capitol building.

 

while commuting, we've hauled multiple, heavy bags—including a Dora-the-Explorer-type backpack, a nondescript canvas tote bag, and a Kate Spade handbag—due to the lack of a bag that could do it all. the spirit of PRISM was born at the intersection of mission-driven work and a simple resistance to compromise. after all, looking good and feeling organized makes you feel like you're at the top of your game.
