“Art begins with resistance.” – André Gide
Art has has the power to change perspectives and to start a new dialogue. That’s why it is such a powerful tool for activists. Now, we’re asking you to harness that power to change the conversation around abortion.
During the week of April 13-19, student activists around the country will create pop-up sticker art displays. We’ll send you a roll of the sticker art (don’t worry, they’re removable stickers!) featuring real people’s abortion stories along with simple instructions. You set up and personalize the exhibit any way you like!
Large and eye-catching, you can post these stickers anywhere! Perhaps on the Quad? Your Student Activity Center? The dining hall? Posting the stories in unexpected areas on campus can spark a new conversation among your peers about the role abortion plays in people’s lives. You don’t have to be Banksy to participate – you just need a high-traffic area and time to construct the display.
Register by March 20th so we can send you the supplies you need.
In solidarity (and creativity!),
