Corita was asked to design numerous posters during her life, but she frequently selected organizations that sought to end war and poverty, and worked to raise awareness for social justice issues. In her “Fast for Peace” poster from 1970, Corita worked with the Vietnam Moratorium Committee to draw attention to the intense suffering caused by war.

In 1971, the same year that Corita’s rainbow swash was unveiled on the Boston Gas tank, a much smaller rainbow was installed in a new cancer unit in Boston’s Bon Secours hospital.
