I think it’s very important to recognize that we are all human beings and that there are valuable perspectives from every culture.
On February 4th, 2011 there will be a joint benefit for Women’s Voices Now (WVN) and the Levantine Cultural Center (LCC) and will support Women’s Voices Now’s fist major project Women’s Voices from the Muslim World: A Short-Film Festival. OBEY has donated a suite of sold out prints to the event. To learn more about the organization and watch the Festival’s 98 selected films, please visit WomensVoicesNow.org.
