Words For Our Time was created in response to the 2016 election. Each piece was made from a large sheet of paper that was torn into separate sections. After the writing was complete, the pieces were sewn together in an act of healing as the torn paper was mended and made whole.

Susan works in multiple media with a focus on sculptural bookmaking and calligraphy. Her work has been featured in magazines and books and has been exhibited across the U.S. and Canada and in South Korea.

Biden’s Plan

Joe Biden knows that gun violence is a public health epidemic. Almost 40,000 people die as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States, and many more are wounded. Some of these deaths and injuries are the result of mass shootings that make national headlines. Others are the result of daily acts of gun violence or suicides that may not make national headlines, but are just as devastating to the families and communities left behind.

Joe Biden has taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won – twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that has since kept more than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden – along with Senator Dianne Feinstein – secured the passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again.
