"There are no nations! There is only humanity. And if we don't come to understand that right soon, there will be no nations, because there will be no humanity."
As the world enters some of the most polemic years in history, Republic of Humanity encourages us to build bridges not walls, teaches us that diversity is one of planet earth’s greatest assets, inspires us to integrate not isolate, and shows us that social equality and self-determination are integral to our collective well-being.
Republic of Humanity’s images cause us to break through our feelings of disconnectedness and help us understand that we are part of something larger. Stories, both visual and written, reveal shared perspectives, values and dreams. It is fundamental that we change the current dialogue.
We must be talking about removing walls and barriers, not building them, welcoming immigrants, not closing borders…and equality rather than disparity.
