RECONCILING UNITY AND DIVERSITY IN THE MODERN ERA:

21st Century Challenges to the Human Rights Movement

How can we live together? That is the fundamental challenge of the modern world. Together, democracy and human rights offer a hopeful response: we must build political communities that not only tolerate, but draw on and celebrate, their internal diversity.

Huffpost Arts & Culture

Art is a powerful emotional tool for creating awareness and fostering a commitment to change the world, even if each print makes just a small dent. Think Uncle Sam's "I Want You For The U.S. Army," Apple's "Think Different" and the "Wonderful Copenhagen" poster with a police officer helping a mother duck across the street with her small ducklings. If you want to disseminate information quickly and engage people, thought-provoking art posters are an effective medium.
