Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) empowers youth to use textile art as a vehicle for personal transformation and community cohesion, and to become agents of social change. The powerful imagery they create in cloth tells their stories, exploring issues such as gender discrimination, mass incarceration, gun violence, and gentrification. This visual dialogue bridges differences in race, age, and socioeconomics and sparks conversations and action in households across the country. Threads of Diversity was inspired by these honest and powerful works of art, curated to ensure that all makers have the tools needed to represent our vibrant, creative, and diverse community.
