This exhibition features the print portfolio Social In/Justice, organized by Benjamin D. Rinehart in 2014. The portfolio centers on unfair acts, inequalities, and restrictions to individuals or groups of people. Each artist was asked to react to and personalize challenges to societal norms.

Rinehart, Lyle J. Slami, and Melanie Yassi address issues relating to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status and politics.
