There is so much injustice in this world. So many people are oppressed because of their gender, race, sexuality, faith and a thousand other ridiculous reasons. Many of these people are deprived of a voice. They don’t have a chance to tell their story and until they can the world cannot begin to correct the huge wrongs under which they live.
I picked the Africa Proverb for my patch because to me it says it all. Until the voices of the oppressed, the poor and the marginalised are heard, no-one will ever know anything is wrong, because those who are telling the story don’t see the problem.
If you have been inspired by Helen’s patch (or any other patches or ideas on this blog or the flickr site) then do get in touch with Ellen Loudon to get involved with the project: firstname.lastname@example.org
