Presented in collaboration with the ACLU of Illinois, this exhibition will kick off the organization’s Engagement Series on Democracy: We the People, an effort to counter the “us versus them” mentality that has permeated the current political climate by asking: Do not tell us what you are against; tell us what you are for.
