Our Mission

“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”    

– Toni Morrison

We are a non-profit charitable project fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas of NYC. 

The time is now for artists and our communities to plant seeds of hope not fear.

We Are American Beauty’s mission is to provide opportunities for creative people to collaborate on social issues including sustainability, equity, and inclusivity; to develop nimble, forward-thinking, optimistic and innovative solutions to today’s challenges. We believe the arts cross racial, ethnic and geographic boundaries; they engage communities; they connect people; and strengthen them.

Spearheaded after the 2016 Presidential election, our first events will take place on January 21st in Portland Maine. Please go to the EVENTS PAGE for more information.
