Mar 2 – May 2 Someday We’ll All Be Free – Art Exhibit

Become educated through art with a multi-arts exhibit by the Youth Leadership Board of Creative Justice. Someday We’ll All Be Free explores the community-based alternative to juvenile detention using social justice values. Each painting and photo in the exhibit give a voice to the youth in our community who want to speak out about mass incarceration and abolition. Under the guidance of mentor artists, participants reflect on the root causes of incarceration such as racism and oppression, understanding how they can become the change in a more equal society.
