Am I the Solution?

I wanted to share the image of myself that was just sent to me as part of the Am I the Solution campaign going on here in the Yukon at the moment.  This is a new initiative taking place in the Territory that aims at ending violence against women.  It is founded on the concept that the way you think is where your power begins – and so by having Yukoners from all backgrounds challenging themselves to become part of the solution it is hoped that the violence can be stopped.  As part of the campaign artists are creating sketches of Yukoners with the words Am I the Solution?  Those sketched are then sharing these completed images to show their support for the campaign.  You can see a gallery of all of the completed sketches to date here and send in a photo of yourself to get your own sketch here.  I love it when art and activism comes together to create such a positive product.
