WOMEN AGAINST HATE UNITED BY LOVE
Justice for all cannot happen if we ignore wrongdoing.
Art is powerful. It speaks in a language we all can understand. It focuses our attention, expands our perspective, even alters our point of view. It can change us.
For many, visual art is a more powerful amplifier of contemporary issues and ideas than the spoken or written word. Art brings people together, and creates a safe environment to explore highly charged topics.
The goal of Women Against Hate United by Love is to counteract hateful rhetoric with stories of our neighbors and community; actively coming together to give love a voice and recognize our community members who are working to shift away from fear and hate.
Women artists, cultural organizers, advocacy groups, funders, and political campaigners have collaborated on long-term planning, design, communication, and dissemination strategies, fully utilize art as a tool for social transformation. Together with printmakers Leigh Garcia and Rachel Griffin, Kelly Parks Snider has put together a series of portraits and words that reflect a community fueled in activism.
