UPDATE: Distance Learning + Exhibition Design

At Unsilence, we are feeling grateful right now. Since the beginning of this pandemic, with our online content already in place through our website - all our content is free and accessible to anyone with internet - Unsilence has been delivering live programs to communities across the country. Our website users and total visits are up 107% and time spent on our website is up 21%.
 
This is why we're so excited to be working on our online exhibition to tell the stories of the mothers of The Sisterhood, a collective of Chicagoland mothers, all women of color, whose children have been killed by senseless gun violence. With "distance learning" becoming the new norm for formal and informal education, the launch of our exhibition has the potential to reach even more people.
 
The design of our online exhibition is going very well. We are now working to select excerpts from interview transcripts and sequencing the exhibition photographs to tell the stories of the mothers as individuals and as a group of activists. Our goals: (1) To unsilence the personal and collective grief, trauma, activism, and healing of mothers of color. (2) To humanize their murdered children who are so often portrayed in a negative light in the media. (3) To connect communities and support them to talk about systemic violence, because we're facing the gun violence crisis together and we can only solve it together.
 
We are so grateful for your support of our work. Please consider adding to your support by following this linkWe cannot unsilence without you. 
 
All my best,
Danny M. Cohen
