Los 'Love Glasses Revolution' pretenden ser mucho más que unas lentes de sol estilosas y con forma de corazón, su objetivo es llevar un mensaje de tolerancia ante las agresivas políticas del presidente electo de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump.El movimiento, nacido en el estado Arizona, busca extenderse por todo el país intentando compartir un mensaje de amor y generosidad en contra del ambiente de racismo e intolerancia que se vive especialmente después de las últimas elecciones.


The world sometimes can be a harsh and cold place, but there are individuals determined to see life through a better lens, and they are ready to create a revolution of peace.This point of view is a bold statement now that the U.S. has elected as president a person who has used hateful rhetoric against immigrants, Muslims, Mexicans, African-American communities and many people who are outside the ‘old white male’ power clique.
