Have you ever heard someone say something hateful and just pretended you didn't hear it?
We've all been there and it's a shame. So we came up with a solution to chip away at this problem.
What if instead of arguing, or causing a scene, we all just reminded the hateful person that "we all live here" and walked away? That would leave the person alone to think about what was just said. Then maybe they'll see the message later on a wall, or a school, or a tee and think about it again.
So we created a program for schools called ACT that teaches students this tactic. All merchandise sales support our with with schools and the creation of we all live here themed art.
