gratitude

 

 

To project participants, thank you for entrusting me with your thoughts and feelings, your fears and triumphs. I feel a deep sense of responsibility to amplify your voices and to portray you in a way that celebrates your humanity. My life is richer for knowing each of you.

To the people and organizations that have helped me  -- and continue to help -- thank you for your ongoing support. 

To the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, thank you for the smArt Grant in support of an exhibition of this project as well as a community conversation on the impacts of LFOs on formerly incarcerated individuals and their families.

LFO policy offends me to my core. I am outraged. Almost two years in, my outrage is no less but I now also have a great appreciation for the endurance of all of the artists and advocates that have come before me.
