Our Logo

Our logo was created by Ricardo Levins Morales, an artist by trade, a healer by temperament and a troublemaker by necessity. His art and writing both grow out of his relationships with communities and movements in struggle for a more livable world. He also offers support and reflection for organizers and others facing the dilemmas of trying to create a future out of materials from the past. His art can be viewed and purchased at RLM Art Studio.
