Aram Han Sifuentes and collaborator Lisa Vinebaum are facilitating a Protest Banner Making Workshop at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum on January 18 from 12noon - 8pm. Come make your own banner or contribute to the collective banner for the Protest Banner Lending Library. Basic materials will be provided, but donations of fabric and other materials are welcome. All ages welcome! Food and beverages will be available.

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum has partnered with Gallery 400 for this creative and collective Protest Banner Making Workshop. This event honors Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the practice of public protest. Though awarded Nobel Peace Prizes over thirty years apart, Martin Luther King Jr. and Jane Addams were both investigated by the FBI for their opposition to war, their advocacy for wider access to the ballot, and their willingness to peacefully agitate against authority. Public protest continues to be an important means of voicing public concern and a creative means of securing the common good. We hope you are able to join us on January 18.
