Theme: We are exploring the theme of JUSTICE in all forms: justice for the earth, its people, animals, people in the legal system, international justice, and more. What does “…and justice for all” mean to you?”
Statement from Marsha Hatcher, co-curator: “…And Justice for ALL”: Those are the final words in the pledge of allegiance to the American flag. Many of us remember that pledge well from school days, right up there with learning the alphabet and our multiplication tables. Every day school was in session, from kindergarten until graduation, I recited it diligently, with hand over heart. It was a proud moment when I could finally remember the words without looking at the board. It was a wake-up call when I finally realized that after all those years of saying “…and justice for ALL,” those words did not include me and did not include certain groups of American citizens. How could a system designed for all omit so many? How could a country that claims to be the best of everything when it comes to fairness and equality not include me and others? So what does “…And Justice for ALL” really mean?
