“Past. Present. Future; Visibility and hope in it all.“
2020 has been a challenging year to say the least. So much of this year has shifted
how we interact with loved ones, friends, family, and strangers worldwide. The
events of this year have shown us how broken and racist our country truly is.
Reforming systematic racism and oppression is huge task to undertake. It will take
years. And that work begins with us, in our households, and in our communities.
The theme and title that best fits this body of work for the Census Project is: Past,
Present, and Future; Visibility and hope in it all.” Each period is affected and
informed by the other. We are all living in these time periods simultaneously.
