The Big Hundred

I was asked by TheBigHundred.com to create a piece of art that would encourage positive, practical activism during the first hundred days of the current administration. I decided to create a piece of art that would encourage people to support GLSEN, which is an organization that helps improve a K-12 education system that too frequently allows its LGBTQ students to be bullied, discriminated against, or fall through the cracks. I stand in solidarity and love with those who have faced hardships for who they are and encourage you to as well. For me, this piece is about using love in an active- instead of passive- way. Love can be a tool, love can be a weapon. Love can cure despair, discrimination and defeat. Hope and tolerance may lose the battle from time to time but with enough love, they will win the war. Visit GLSEN.org to see how you can help and visit thebighundred.com for more inspiration!
