Keeping Hope Alive For Syria

The Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan is home to over 80,000 Syrian refugees. Murals by Joel Bergner artolution.org ©2013 and local artists, including camp children, lift up their spirits and voices. The power of art to nurture and inspire has rarely been more evident.

Rise Together

Solidarity is the exciting theme of Cheryl Braganza’s vibrant painting of women marching for justice in Mumbai, India.  Paired with Aaron Goggans’ (Black Lives Matter) insightful words, it spurs our dedication to forge a unified resistance against the rightwing assaults on fairness and justice.

Nidoto nah yoni (Let it not happen again). Photographs by Trent Kanemaki and other photographers.

Standing Rock Lives
