“I am here today not because I want to be: I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me."
- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford
This piece was made in the wake of the Kavanaugh hearings and his confirmation to the Supreme Court. I watched numerous close friends share stories of their own experiences with assault and was deeply affected by Dr. Ford's choice to testify, even when it costed her everything. I played off the tarot card theme and made a new category for a new age. After all, if placing country above self isn't patriotism, then what is?
