Event description
Co-op Community Conversations: Exploring the intersection of racial, social, and food justice

About this event

On Thursday, June 24th from 6pm-7:30pm, join us outside of Seward Co-op's Franklin and Friendship stores for music, artist conversation, and opportunities to create art and signs you can bring to future community actions or display at your home. Muralists will be doing live painting and as co-op members, we will express our commitments to the movement in 2021 and beyond.

For those who are unable to join us in person, we’ll also be livestreaming the event on Facebook, with conversations with Leesa Kelly, founder of Memorialize the Movement, Seward Co-op Board members, and some of the artists who shared their talents with our community. Following the event, the remaining 2020 murals will be officially donated to Memorialize the Movement.

Before the event, you can download our free virtual Abolition Art Kit- this kit has resources and ideas for you and your family to create your own art at home as a reminder of your commitment to anti-racism in 2021 and beyond.

Everyone is welcome and RSVP not required; however, if you register you will receive an email from Eventbrite that contains an event reminder and livestream link before the event.
