This pendant was designed exclusively for BARCC & signed by sculptural artist, Nancy Schon, of Make Way for Ducklings fame. The design was inspired by the BARCC logo.
"As I looked at the logo of BARCC, I decided to incorporate its three leaves, a symbol of growth and change into my pendant design. As I moved clusters of these leaves around, a magical formation evolved in the center of the four clusters- a butterfly appeared - a second symbol, that of transformation, rebirth, renewal and freedom."
This t-shirt was designed exclusively by Mer+ge for BARCC. The design was inspired by BARCC's mission of Healing and Social Change:
"The shirt design came to me after exploring BARCC's vision 'to end sexual violence through healing and social change.' This begins with each individual being heard and understood. In order to be heard, you have to have two lines of communication. One ready to speak and the other ready to listen. From there the possibilities to grow are exponential."
