The First Amendment Project (FAP) and Toomey Tourell Gallery are pleased to welcome you to a fundraiser in conjunction with their current exhibition, artist Clinton Fein's Numb & Number. The controversial exhibition includes two of the images destroyed by a Palo Alto-based printing service prior to the opening of the exhibit, citing "unacceptable content standards." The exhibit deals with current events and the horrors and anguish of war as depicted in the graphic, editorialized images of Clinton Fein.

Please join First Amendment Project's Executive Director, David Greene, Clinton Fein, Stephen Tourell and Nancy Toomey for a toast-raising and fundraiser to benefit the First Amendment Project.

15% of art sales will be donated to The First Amendment Project.

The First Amendment Project is a nonprofit, civil liberties organization dedicated to protecting and promoting freedom of information, expression, and petition. For nearly ten years, FAP has provided advice, educational materials, and legal representation to its core constituency of activists, journalists, and artists in service of these fundamental liberties. Through its Artistic Freedom Initiative, FAP promotes civil discourse by connecting artists who create political or controversial art with Bay Area audiences.
