Art and Compassion was a simple effort to mobilize artists in serving the poor.  People in poverty often need a channel for their story to be heard.   Artists need meaningful stories to tell.

A few years ago Juarez was named the most violent city in the world outside an active war zone (due to the drug wars).  We have friends who have a small children’s home there.  We brought a couple photographers down to Juarez to photo and video the children.  Then we held an open house back in Minneapolis to tell the children’s stories and raise support for them.
