OUR HISTORY IN WORDS AND IMAGES

Eyes Wide Open (June 2011)

CCPJ hosted this display on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. Empty boots represented our state’s share of U.S. casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. Civilian shoes, sandals, and slippers, from baby to adult sizes, represented all the civilian casualties from these wars.

Eyes Wide Open began in 2004 with the Chicago office of the American Friends Service Committee and spread nationwide, involving thousands of volunteers and visited by millions of people.

This display is one of the featured images on our Home Page Slide Show.
