" An Empty Plate at the Table ", represents the emotions and feeling reserved for those who did not come home. It is a physical reminder to remain conscious of the injustices around the world. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Tookie's Voice, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization.
