The We the People campaign aims to restore hope, imagination, curiosity, and creativity into our country’s dialogue. At a time of so much discrimination and injustice, this photograph taken by French and Senegalese artist Delphine Diallo and converted into an illustration by Shepard Fairey reminds us of the power of youth and the world we’re building around them. “We finally understand the necessity to diffuse more art to the public not only for the elite. This art is meant to spark a conversation, What does WE THE PEOPLE—these three famous words in the preamble to the Constitution—mean in the 21st century?” asks Diallo. This image of 12-year-old Menelik, calling us to #ProtectEachOther, has been downloaded on Amplifier’s website and shared thousands of times.
