The forces of repression are killing people across this land on a daily basis, spreading terror in the communities of the oppressed and destroying families. While thousands have taken to the streets to fight against this police terror, let’s not forget that the canvas, the pen, the word are also weapons in this struggle.
In this spirit, we are presenting a silent auction of art with musical interlude. We understand that NOW is the time for the national mobilization to demand: Stop Police Terror, Which Side Are You On? Your support, by purchasing artworks, will give heart to those who suffer this torture 24/7 and it will open the eyes of many more in this society who do not suffer this brutality. ALL PROCEEDS will be used exclusively to get families who have lost loved ones to police murder to lead the historic march on Oct 24 in New York City: Stop Police Terror, Which Side Are You On?
