a.k.a. 3 Women, 3 Stories
a.k.a. Rashida Tlaib
Gouache on watercolor paper

Rashida Tlaib is one of many women who are fighting, or have fought, to secure community benefits for their hometown of Southwest Detroit over the decades. For this piece, I wanted to connect Rashida's story with those of Cheryl Maddox and Mary Szawala. The letters behind her form words describing these three women's experiences, starting with the past and building up to end with Rashida's current thoughts on Community Benefits Agreements in the foreground.
