Diverse City is a set of images displayed on the LinkNYC network that celebrate diversity across NYC. The bold and iconographic images re-envision the Statue of Liberty as marginalized citizens in the current political environment. The celebrated groups include Muslim-Americans and other immigrants, the LGBTQ community, women and children, the Black community and victims of structural racism, and people with disabilities. Collectively, Diverse City portrays this country’s most recognizable symbol wearing a cloak of fabric made of the diverse individuals whose lives interweave every day.
