Join the Somerville Public Library and Wee the People for an exploration of symbols of protest.
From the raised fist to the peace sign to the simple word "NO," symbols of protest have played a big role in protesting injustice and ushering in change. Learn about different images of resistance then choose one to make a t-shirt of your own!
