Our Story

"Liberty Is Wobbly"

"Keith Haring was drawing the outline of the banner that 1000 of us were coming to fill in our thoughts and suddenly we said...

'Yo Keith…. the arm goes the other way !! Did you make a mistake?'

 

Keith said  'NA, that's ok …Liberty is wobbly!'"

 

Now, more than ever, we need our voices heard as we heal democracy and liberty through our shared stories.
