The results of the 2016 election devastated communities across the United States — but it sparked a fire in thousands of people to make their voices heard. For the Women’s March in 2017, Amplifier held an open call for artwork and received over 5,000 submissions in just eight days. All of the pieces advocate for the rights of women, immigrants, black and brown and queer communities, people Native to the land, and the Earth itself.
Fifty of those works were selected for a touring exhibition called Hear Our Voice. In this hand-painted image from the campaign, artist Jess X Snow represents the billions of years of joy and resistance of Mother Earth and those who have inhabited her long before hatred and fear gained power — and who will outlive the patriarchy and blossom anew.
