THE FREEDOM GRILL

An ongoing project. Victims of violence are invited to create a grill that empowers them. A golden opportunity to express and share in the journey of healing from intimate partner violence. Word up!

Courage: Strength in the face of pain or grief. Menatl or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty to gain freedom and peace.

Grill: subject someone to intense questioning or interrogation. An abusers control tactic to gain power over their victim.

Teeth grill, grills, grillz, fronts: The history of mouth jewelry dates back centuries and continues to weave in and out of trends and cultures; allowing one to flash their passion, politics, cause, and/or style through a smile. For a victim, now thriver, of violence, the wearing of the mouth jewel “COURAGE” is a golden symbol of the abundance of courage within them. Speaking out, and shedding light on the cowardice abuser.
