    In 2017 the number of immigrant children detained was 2,400. In 2018, it became more than 14,000. To illustrate the number of minors separated from families and put in detainment centers across the U.S., we created a giant milk carton in Venice Beach filled with 14,000 milk cartons as a nod to the missing childrens campaign that ran through the U.S. from the early 80s to the late 90s. Each milk carton is labeled with what the children are missing, ie. family, youth, gifts, et cetera.

    The sign and website are in English and Spanish. On 14000andcounting.org, there is more information about the issue, people can find out how they can help, and a (working) op-ed video will go live providing broader context for the issue with possible solutions. 100,000 signatures on our petition will make Congress have to bring the issue to the table, and is our goal for phase 1.

    We created a series of teasers for the unveiling of the installation, and graphic assets people can post to their stories or feed. View on next project.

    Graphic design contributions for opening night and social.
