The Maker movement is one of inclusion, equality, and love. Love for our creative passions, love for building something, love for our future, and love for humanity. The Idea Foundry and the Franklinton Urban Empowerment Lab are deeply saddened by recent events--rallies against the very democratic principles of equality we hold dear, demonstrations of hatred, racism and other forms of bigotry, the sporting of symbols that represent some of the darkest moments of our history. We are reminded how important it is to show up and do the right thing.
