Blog / 2017 / Activism That Changes the World

May 22, 2017

Empathetic Magic opens June 10th at the MT Burton Gallery! For more about Jean Russell, my friend who made the link between activism and grief, visit her website.

The artichoke words are tolerance, identity, multicultural, inclusivity, affirmative action, intersectionality, diversity, and empathy. The dandelion words are fundamentalism, anti-PC, systemic racism, microaggressions, fear, troll, nationalism, birth certificate, MAGA (or “Make America Great Again”), and 45 (because Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States).
