Emma Gonzalez with mosaic of slogans (art by Serena May Illescas)

Another artwork, this one by Serena May Illescas, with Emma Gonzalez in a mosaic of signs related to the growing movement against gun violence. Serena displayed the art on Facebook with the following text: "One bright spot in all the anger and frustration of current events is that it’s fertile soil for artists. I’ve been compelled for the first time in a long time to create work, and that’s due in no small part to being inspired by the passion and conviction of these emerging adults, particularly #EmmaGonzalez. Americans, call your senators and representatives. Donate. Make art and music and champion the people who are out there doing the damn thing." (Serena kindly allowed me to post this image with the license shown. If reposting must credit the artist).

Of the young activists, one exchange between these survivors and a spokesperson of a terrorist organization can be viewed here:
