“Taking on White Supremacy, Racism and Anti-Blackness is an open call for GIFs that invites artists to share stories of how they’ve been impacted, shine a light upon the problem itself, honor active work to repair the damage, or encourage people to keep up the momentum towards a society where everyone can thrive. This open call is an opportunity to create and share art that illuminates the work each of us can do to end bigotry, and build justice. This is what democracy looks like.” — RISE UP! , Task Force & Tenor

“This is precisely the time when artists go to work.  There is no time for despair,  no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”

– Toni Morrison
