I have huge news this week! The 'My Body My Choice' bandana I created over the summer has been selected for a virtual exhibit - Responding to the Overturn of Roe V. Wade hosted by Anthropology of Motherhood.
I'm so honored to be among these brave & beautiful artists raising our voices against the overturning of Roe Vs. Wade. Who do you turn to vote for when the controlling majority is the democrats, the ones swearing to protect the rights of women. We are trapped in an unhealthy system of governing power that seems to write "turn this paper over for a better answer" on both sides.
Let's burn that paper up!

In June 2022, the landmark 1973 ruling of Roe v. Wade, which legalized the right to an abortion, was overruled by the United States Supreme Court.
What does this mean for people who can become pregnant, for healthcare providers, for the LGBTQIA+ community, for people of color, and for affected intersectional groups and communities? Artists respond with work that examines the current politicization of abortion/reproductive care and bodily autonomy, exploring the personal, the historical, the communal, and the ethics of care. This virtual art exhibition engages as an urgent and renewed call to action leading up to November’s election.
(I promise Im tagging everyone!! It's just taking a while, haha)
