An initiative to encourage voter registration and participation in the November 2020 elections by honoring John Lewis, one of the greatest American heroes of our time. 

MAKE GOOD TROUBLE CONTEST
Statement of Solidarity

Since our founding in 2016 by a core intergenerational and racially diverse group of women, we have supported and worked towards racial justice in our work, amplifying more representation by and of people of color in the belief that representation matters and in the recognition that racism is individual, interpersonal, institutional and systemic.

 

We stand in solidarity with our Black, Brown, and Indigenous friends and colleagues in demanding justice for those who have faced multiple manifestations of White supremacy and structural racism and who have been denied opportunities to freely live their fullest lives. We see and validate the strength, beauty, gifts, rage, grief, and exhaustion of our friends and colleagues, and of communities of color everywhere.

 

Our medium is art and civic dialogue and we will continue to use our platform to work towards a more just society in the belief that we are all entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We stand united in the belief that voting is a crucial aspect of citizenship.

 

Black Lives Matter.
