Social Justice & Community


“This piece honors immigrants and their choice to continue to wear traditional clothing from their culture. This piece celebrates the idea that they deserve to be comfortable wherever they go. It also reminds us they are deserving of continuously being given things to create a more comfortable life. 


Esta pieza rinde homenaje a los inmigrantes y su decisión de seguir vistiendo con ropa tradicional de su cultura. Esta pieza celebra la idea de que merecen estar cómodos donde quiera que vayan. También nos recuerda que merecen continuamente recibir cosas para crear una vida más cómoda.” – Ruby Morales
