Because ALL lives matter, we are looking for art that reflects the theme and considers the world’s poor, weak, hungry, the radicals, religious, and refugees, human rights, slavery, political views, movers, shakers, spin doctors, givers, takers, lovers, haters, activists, instigators, victims, voters, advocates, promoters, confrontations, concerns, injustices, zealots, protests, the blessed, suppressed, and unaddressed, welfare, war torn, well-being, misunderstood, fleeing, agreeing, and disagreeing, lawful, illegal, violent, peaceful, freedoms, concerned citizens, and governments.
