We Protect Us

The Torch I

The Torch II

Artist Statement:

This series of images and the larger body of work that they are pulled from primarily aim to do two things: document the past and present of nonviolent direct action, and promote these ideas to an audience that may be unfamiliar or uncertain about these tactics. While Rescue is not the only form of nonviolent direct action that this body of work covers, it is certainly a major thread, and it was while pulling on this thread that I discovered how entwined Rescue can be with the Consistent Life Ethic. The principles of “Equality, Nonviolence, and Nondiscrimination” not only compel us to save the unborn, but also to support and protect mothers and serve the “forgotten of the forgotten” who are dehumanized by our prison systems.
