Contribute to the Women of the Black Panther Party Mural
Thank you for your support
We're So close

We are halfway there! All of the funding thus far has gone into preparing the house for the mural and then installing the side wall mural dedicated to the Women of The Black Panther Party. As of March 2021, that main wall is 90% done, and we are on a break (in mural creation?) to raise the funds needed for the back of the house - dedicated to Sandra Bland and the #SayHerName movement.

Saying someone’s name confirms their existence.

All donations are tax deductible.

sandra bland

The entire mural is based on the tenets of the #SayHerName movement – Black Women are not invisible. The entire back of the house is dedicated to Sandra Bland. She always spoke from the heart and spoke of love and liberation. This quote, and this quote alone, will fill the entire back wall and can be seen from two blocks away at the playground of Prescott Elementary School. Everyone can feel joy from Sandra’s words, most specifically children.
