#TruthToPower Pop-Up Art Show during the DNC

From July 21, 2016 Streets Dept blog post:

Truth To Power is a (SURPRISE!) large-scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural convening, and community organizing event series that will take place in Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention, July 25th-27th:

“Presented by Rock The Vote in partnership with #Cut50 and other national and community partners, The Truth to Power exhibition and event space is designed to elevate and illuminate the most pressing issues facing young people in the United States today — from ending mass incarceration and stopping police violence to providing access to jobs and a living wage, building a fair immigration system to protecting reproductive freedom, making higher education affordable and defending our right to vote. Together, we will lift our voices, identify solutions, assert our power and work together to claim our future — a world where we can all live with dignity, freedom and hope.” –TruthToPower.us
