Created by Patrice Payne for the 2019 Artwork for Equity Advocacy Campaign.

UNITE represents the ability for people to come together — across different cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences — to mobilize and fight for positive social change within our often complex society. The figures depicted symbolize our younger generations, potentially future generations, who will hopefully become agents of change, justice, and peace. UNITE demonstrates the importance of resilience and interconnectivity, which in turn will help people ultimately feel empowered about who they are and encourage a better outlook on our future.

All posters will be mailed at the end of the special Artwork for Equity sale on April 15, 2019.
