Call to Artivism

Friends,

As the leading fraternal organization for artists, we stand strong to our vision to serve the community through the Arts. Through all that has been going on in society, from Trayvon Martin to Ferguson; to people being excused for their wrong-doings, artists have been present. With every movement, no matter how big or small, artists have been present.
