Thank you to everyone in Portland who came out to the âGathering Resistance: Black Lives Matterâ event last night. These are some of the slides we presented featuring breathtaking work by diverse artists: vulpesvulpesvulpes, mousetrap, Gloria Koh, Patrick Campbell Art/Illustration , Lunar New Year, Dolli Li, and Nafis White & many more. Shout out to Dont Shoot Portland , Black Creative Collective and the filmmakers behind Arresting Power for putting your fierce spirits out there and starting an ongoing conversation in Portland that speaks truth to power, race, violence and gentrification.
During the event, Black activist, Theresa Raiford of Dont Shoot Portland made the most encouraging comment about Artists Against Police Violence â she said the work she saw âgave affirmation and vision to the just world she encountered in her dreams.âÂ
We must continue to build, create and organize critically and with grace.Â
Follow us at â³ www.artistsagainstpoliceviolence.comÂ for many graphics and artwork to be used for communities against police murders of Black people.
