WHAT YSJ IS DOING NOW
ART AND ACTION FOR AHMAUD
Since Ahmaud Arbery’s life was unjustly taken from us on February 23, 2020, those closest to him, as well as young people across the country, have been organizing and seeking justice. Now, six months later, three organizations, Students Unite!, Youth Speak Justice, and the iRunWithWithMaud Committee are calling youth worldwide to come together and create various forms of art that express your feelings and experiences during the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement.
This call-to-action is an effort to raise awareness, inspire change, and honor the memory of Ahmaud and all black and brown bodies who have died at the hands of racial violence. Your artwork can be any type of medium, including visual art, creative writing, spoken word, photography, music, and all performing arts. Art submissions will be showcased beginning on August 23, to commemorate the 6 month anniversary of Ahmaud’s death.
