Features renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer, Valarie Kaur of the Revolutionary Love Project.
"Valarie's portrait is the first in our year-long series of artworks and toolkits designed to reframe the issues that have been used to divide us and start the conversations that can restore our faith in each other, renew our hope, and repair the social fabric of this country that has been torn apart. Each of us has a role in building an America where all of us are safe and free, and we will only succeed if we lead with the ethic of love. These conversations are the only way to rebuild our union. This is a challenging time to talk about empathy, outreach, and love but how else can we rebuild? What other foundation can we lay down but love? Revolutionary love is scary but necessary in these times." - Shepard
