MuralJawns: Philly Murals for Black Lives Matter

MuralJawns: Philly Murals for Black Lives Matter

Ongoing Opportunity

Our voices will echo through the walls of our city. Murals to honor Black lives in Philly.

The Why
The protests and actions across our city over the past few weeks are the
start of a long overdue, city-wide recognition that Black Lives Matter.
MuralJawns wants to ensure that the calls that filled our streets
reverberate in our communities. MuralJawns will connect storefront
businesses with black, Philly-based artists to transform boarded up
storefronts into murals that celebrate black lives. It is their hope that these
murals help communities foster (or continue) long-term dialogues on
what actions they need to take to show that Black Lives Matter.

The Who
To make this possible, they need:
