NEW EXHIBIT TOURING NOW: BUILDING BRIDGES: Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees
Black Lives Matter
As a non-profit organization that strives to educate children, teens and adults, provide resources, and combat racial injustice, we are outraged by the continued acceptance of racial violence against innocent Black American People by the American police. We wholeheartedly support the Black Lives Matter Movement, as we stand in solidarity with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other black and brown bodies murdered at the hands of police. Now more than ever, it is our duty to educate, protest, and mobilize in order to offer our resources in the process of dismantling hundreds of years of institutional racism and oppression. Our first exhibit, Of Many Colors: Portraits of Multiracial Families (created in 1994 but still relevant and timely) offers a way to bring conversations about race and racism into schools at all levels (K-college) , and our newest exhibit: Building Bridges: Portraits of Immigrants and Refugees offers a way to discuss the current crisis facing so many individuals and families in America.
We can, we will, and we must, do better.

We can move beyond our stereotypes and prejudices when we meet and learn about the lives of real people.
