A diverse group of young people, adults, children stand with their fists raised in the air, and one woman speaks into a megaphone. A Black woman, a teacher, is sitting with two students as they paint, draw, or write. Lines radiate out behind them in orange, yellows and blues. In black text on top, the words: “OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR RESPONSIBILITY, OUR TIME.”
