This collection of works is Amato's interpretation of modern and historic figures who rose like “superheroes” to accept seemingly impossible challenges of liberty.

We will discuss the issue of firearms with our Moderator Intersect Alliance, along with invited experts and other participants. Our goal is to provide attendees with the tools needed for moving our conversations on hot button issues, like this, offline and back into human discussions.
