Testimonials

Participating artistically with peaceful people is another step to a loving world! —Tony
I was captivated by the display at our med school. So many different people, and all "b'tselem Elohim", reflections of the Divine image, doing good in the world! —Jeremy
I am participating because I understand the damaging affects of labeling one another has on our community. These labels are devised in order to separate us and keep us from reaching social equity. In my opinion, the purpose of life is to seek happiness, improve the world around you, and in doing so connecting with others. Labeling each other to highlight our differences and demonizing our adversaries not only marginalizes groups and closes our own minds, but is inhumane. I'm not perfect, I'm not always right, but I'm trying. And it's not because of my labels that I am imperfect, it's because I'm only human. —Jibrael
To be a part of a project that promotes loving and kindness by focusing on the similarities in one another and finding connections versus fearing the differences and creating distance. —Alicia
This project is so encouraging and is a wonderful reminder that each person has something to offer. Good deeds don't have to be huge and awe-inspiring! Everyday acts of kindness really make a difference. —Isabella
I think this project is amazing. It's a visual representation that we are so much more than the labels. If we all come together and start living with the purpose of completing one good deed each day, we'd have much stronger communities. —Gabrielle
Everyone should feel worthy and equal, never less than... I know how hard that feeling can be. —Emily
Because I want and love the idea of this. I've been bullied and talked down to and I think this is the best thing I've seen so far and it makes me double think myself that I'm better than wut I've been told. —Casey
I am a photographer, so I love community projects! I am also so many more things than just 3 labels! This project is so good because often times we define ourselves moment to moment based on our success, failures or by what we want to project to others. It's human nature to identify and label ourselves but we are much more complex than that. I am a walking contradiction at times, I can be a 1000 different things at once. It is a humble reminder to not take ourselves too seriously, to never feel locked into being one thing, to never be defined by your success or failure and most importantly to never judge a book by its cover. —Leah
We live in a world where I thought about my own labels for two hours, while I could have picked someone else's labels in two seconds. I am participating to find peace in labels- celebrate, and not fear. —Katie
Growing up, I've realized that we live in a world that can be very negative and judgmental. As people get to know others, they begin to realize that labels are superficial and that we each have unique qualities and personalities to bring to this lovely world. This project is a great reflection of my views on society. —Tomas
I am participating because I truly believe in the mission of the No Evil Project. We all have labels but those labels don't make us who we are. What makes us who we are is how we treat each other. —Sarah
This is an awesome project. People get to define themselves, not have others define them. It's fun and engaging. It is inspiring to see so many different people who, together, make up the rich fabric of our community. —Judy
I try to believe in the good in humanity, though sometimes it isn't easy. I think this project does a great job putting faces to that goodness, and breaking apart preconceived notions of stereotypes. We could all use to be less judgmental, as well as to be judged less. I'm glad to be a part of this. —Sarah
We live in a world of stereotypes. Judgemental people. It's time we break down the barriers and show the world we have a voice. Not all tattooed and pierced people are bad people. We are upstanding citizens and we all have heart and soul . —James
Being part of a larger project is just an amazing concept and if my photo can help someone achieve a bigger dream, I am in. —Matt
This labeling was difficult but enjoyable. What an interesting way to get to know someone. There IS good in everyone! —Todd
In high school labels mean everything, showing off who you are shouldn't be a big deal and people shouldn't have to worry about being judged for their labels. —Jenna
Because it's a fun way to be a part of a large group statement. We are all like beautiful beads on a necklace connected by our humanity. —Judy
I am the living 'anti-stereotype' and there are many more like me in this world. I hope others will see me and know that they do not have to live down to negative stereotypes about Blacks, women, or overweight people. —Audrey
