A follow-up to our 2021 catalogue Pressing Issues, this list continues the conversation of the first, featuring works grappling with issues of racial equality, LGBTQ+ rights, unjust incarceration and policing, and environmental advocacy, among many others. Sixty-two items are featured here, ranging from books and works on paper to a wood printing block and paper dolls. As curator Meredith G. Santaus states in her Introduction: "Whether you browse as collector, curator, or creator, or as a fellow laborer in the work of equality, we hope you find among these items the encouragement to go on, as we must, and the empowerment to do the best we can for each other, as we should."
