“WE THE PEOPLE: For Show or For Sure?” is a presentation in image and word intended to engage the audience in a soul-searching examination of our own contributions to the challenges and crises facing our country and the world: Can peace survive in a structure embedded with systemic racism in the legal system, health care, and education? Can political representation be fair when election campaigns are swamped with special interests and dark money? To what extent do our politics and policies foster divisions, conflicts, violence, and war? Can there be peace when social justice is defiled and human rights are violated? Art raises awareness, inspires change, and stimulates action by expressing repressed perspectives and contesting dominant narratives.
