“I got involved behind the scenes with the graphic design of the portraits because it is a great initiative—one that should exist in every field.”

 — Parisa Mirshahi, Graphic Designer


“Our goal was to empower the attendees to build on the important messages being shared and brainstorm accessible tasks that might contribute to the ecosystem of activism that is necessary for systems change. As an artist, I believe in the power of a portrait painting to signal what is important, what is in focus, and what is respected.”

- Aquil Virani, Award-Winning Live Artist
