$earching for American Justice: The Pursuit of Happiness is a SeriouslySilly satire about justice in America during #election2012 and beyond.
AJ will be performing in the streets for the Art in Odd Places festival in Oct. http://www.artinoddplaces.org/artist.php?subj=133
#TheSilly: AmericanJustice is legally blonde and legally blind, out of touch d- list celebrity and socialite. AJ (like AliG and Colbert Report) highlights our media’s fixation on celebrity gossip and #FauxNews, but will feature community organizers, educators and other progressive institutions and artists dedicated to systemic change.
#TheSerious: a policy blog called #AJMIA (American Justice Missing in Action) http://ajmia.tumblr.com/ explores the quote I think the first duty of society is justice by Alexander Hamilton to highlight the ways in which our democracy is not serving the needs of the people through 6 indicies: housing, healthcare, law enforcement, the economy, gender rights, immigration and education.
The goal is to get people excited about the entire political process beyond just voting for a candidate but also advocating for their own interests. Whether it’s buying a car, baking a cake or having a baby, constant maintenance and monitoring is required. Unfortunately less than 50% of Americans vote and far fewer participate in local elections or petition legislators to change laws to ensure justice. Let’s get serious during #election2012 and beyond to do more than just vote.
What are YOU going to do?
“I think the first duty of society is justice.” ~Alexander Hamilton.
