During the Summer of Love in 1967, like millions of others, I was nearly consumed by my angst over the Vietnam War. We vented our frustration by marching in protest and carrying signs of Give Peace a Chance and Make Love Not War. Sadly, so many issues of those times are still prevalent today, such as war, racial and gender inequality, women’s rights, climate change, lack of trust in our political leadership, and more. This poster contest gives Marin youth a public platform for expressing their hope, optimism, concerns and social justice vision.
