We approach the task of social change as artists and activists with love, respect, and joy. We believe that tossing a pebble into a pond may seem a small thing, but that the ripples continue to the shore and return – that systemic oppression is best combated in the struggle of the moment – that the stories people tell about their own lives reverberate with more power than the myths perpetrated by those in power – and that laughter itself is subversive.
