Justice for me

ABOUT

The “Justice for Me” pre-campaign is an international exhibition that welcomes stories about issues that impact disenfranchised youth. Before creating a story for submission, please read of all the eligibility criteria, rules, and FAQs. We are eager to review your submission and wish you good luck!

PURPOSE

The purpose of the “Justice for Me” pre-campaign is to shine a light on artists from around the world on what justice means to them. Through art and storytelling, youth bring awareness to critical issues they face locally and globally as well as activate audiences to do something about it! Each piece accepted and exhibited – via the SDG 18 Voices journal – is to give the audience a better understanding of the capacity to unite communities and to communicate in a way that is inclusive of language and art.

This pre-campaign expands on our PeaceTones® model. The technological, legal, and human rights framework PeaceTones® generated at the Justice Layer of the Internet provides the tools, standards and processes that can be deployed instantly to world crisis points and affected individuals deprived of identity, credentials, and economic sustainability. Just as music and video can be produced, verified, and distributed by the remote reach of the internet, so too can artists of all disciplines and ages let their voices be heard through the Justice Layer. This is especially important for those disenfranchised and vulnerable, namely the youth living in fragile states.
