BLACK LIVES MATTER
We know that things in America are not fair. We know that racism is real and deep down we all want to heal.
We know that violence anywhere hurts everyone. We know that fear and unfamiliarity is a core driver. We know that bias keeps us separated from ourselves, each other, and our humanity.
We know that in the longer arc set forth by leaders throughout history and today, love will win.
We know that freedom is a cost of shame.
We believe we can change the way things are, now.
In response to the murders of George Floyd, Breona Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Ahmaud Arbery and countless names which we know and have invoked for justice, we are leveraging our power the best way we know we can.
With the City of Oakland, Oakland Museum of California, and our community partners, we are building a collaborative mural to amplify and unify the voices, vision, and stories from our diverse Oakland community.
While respecting social distance and upholding sanitary standards, on July 25th there will be locations set up around Oakland where 400 people, throughout the day, will participate in the creation of a larger mural.
All funds raised for this project will go directly to Soul Shoppe -- a Black led organization that works with thousands of families and children to uproot racism at it's roots by using art and storytelling to strengthen compassion and understanding.
If you want to bring this project to your community, company, or family, please contact: email@example.com.

MOTHER'S CRIES SHOULDN'T HAVE TO BE
WHAT IT TAKES TO INSPIRE CHANGE.
OUR VISION IN ACTION.
Everyone has a different position and place while working together to make it a reality that everyone knows Black Lives Matter. The Black Lives Matter Mosaicli Mural is a representation of a shared vision rooted in collective action providing an opportunity for leaders, artists, and community members to contribute their art, stories, and commitment to action to a larger community mural.
For some, action might look like self care. For others, it could look like educating family or divesting from racist institutions.
Help make the world safer for everyone by donating, spreading the word, and adding your contribution along with a diverse community of leaders creating the world they dream to see.
Your contributions will go toward Black artists, organizations, and leaders using art as a way to dismantle barriers -- mental, emotional, and systemic -- that keep us all from being free.
