Over the recent months and years, the number of detained children in our country has skyrocketed and the US government is not doing its part in caring for even their most basic physical needs, let alone their emotional needs. Impossibly small children are being sent to court for their deportation proceedings without any legal or adult representation, where they must face a judge and lawyers representing the United States government. Can you imagine yourself being put in this position if you were five years old? Can you imagine yourself not being able to understand where you are or what is being said to you while a room of adults decides your fate? Can you imagine the painful hope of wondering if these grownups will reunite you with your family?
I believe we can all find ways to contribute in coming to the aide of the youngest victims of this national atrocity. I have set up a fundraising page with KiND (supportkind.org) in conjunction with P.R.I.N.T. (Protect and Release Innocent Niños Today): A Monotype Print Exhibition. KiND (Kids In Need of Defense) provides pro bono attorneys to represent unaccompanied children in their deportation proceedings, as well as legal screenings, and Know Your Rights presentations. KiND vows to ensure that no child is let to stand alone in court.
The exhibition will be held at Now or Never Coffee and will offer eight of my framed monotypes. All proceeds from this show will be donated to KiND. Additional unframed monotypes will be available at the reception only.
If you are not able to attend, please consider donating through the link provided above.
I am very happy to announce that this silverpoint drawing, Three Graces, will be included in an exhibition next month alongside an incredible roster of artists. See details below!
