SHARE THE MIC: THE CARE WE CREATE
ACLU Southern California and artist Audrey Chan revealed a massive mural in Los Angeles last month; The Care We Create depicts major figures in the fight for civil liberties and civil rights in Southern California. The 5,500-square-foot painting is the product of ACLU SoCal’s inaugural artist-in-residency program and serves as a “constant reminder that the work of challenging systems that perpetuate injustice is a profound expression of love and compassion.”
Join Audrey Chan, Marcus Benigno, ACLU SoCal’s Chief Communications & Marketing Officer, and two activists featured in the mural—Janaya Future Khan and Marjan Vayghan—for a conversation about this project and the power of art to advocate for social change.
