As a white person, I know that my happy life is a direct result of the way I look on the outside. My blue eyes and white skin have given me opportunities and benefits that black and brown people do not equally receive.  Our entire world is facing a crisis of social injustice. To aid in the fight against racism, I am using my artwork as a tool to raise funds for The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The mission of the NAACP is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
