Boston #StandsWithImmigrants is an internationally recognized public art project conceived of and executed by Anthem's core team. The project emblazons Boston with the faces of immigrants, highlighting their contributions and showing the world we stand with them in solidarity.

We believe the portraits are a beautiful and dignified response to an intensifying climate of fear and exclusion - one that will encourage conversation, reassure the world of our humanity, raise public consciousness and help move the needle at a policy level.

In the face of threats to our democracy, we answer - With love. With thoughtful reproach.

WITH ART.
