Silence is Consent — Don’t Hold Your Peace
Emily was commissioned to write a song as part of an event called "Silence is Consent" at Dixon Place. The event is a "collective outcry from Artists and NYPD coming together for a night of urgent dialogue through creative expression, with a mission to rebuild trust, incite change, and inspire hope for the future."
The song is called "Hand-me-down," and it's about living with ugly history.
