Change of Image – Change of Attitude

The folks over at Sociological Images blog recently posted this comparison between the official international symbol for persons with disabilities (above) and one the author spotted at a local T.J. Maxx in California (below).  We talk about engaging with refugees as active partners vs. passive beneficiaries.  This imagery  might give us insight into how unexpected subtle changes can shift our thinking.  Doesn’t the second image convey so much more motion and strength?  Someone’s been thinking.   Q.  How can we shift our representation of the refugees we serve in a similar way?
