Art and Activism

Dear friend,

This past weekend, our team helped launch In Honor of Iran’s Political Prisoners –– a mural, art, and performance project in remembrance of political prisoners in Iran. We were joined by over 150 activists, artists, and supporters as we remembered 7 Iranian women who remain imprisoned for peaceful protests. It was a deeply inspiring event and the music, speeches, and energy from those who attended will stay with me a long time.

I’ve included more photos from the event below, and you can watch a 2-minute summary of the event here. If you want to see the mural for yourself, check out the Clarion Alley Mural project or visit during one of the 3 other events in honor of Iranian political prisoners that will take place this month.
