To memorialize and honor the numerous Black individuals who have been killed by police or vigilantes, and to declare our support for the Black Lives Matters movement, we are collecting paper and fabric flowers from the community.
The flowers will adorn the portraits of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor being painted by Julie Atkinson, a member of the Mindful Littles community and co-facilitator of the Mindful Littles’ racial justice presentations, “Engaging Families on Race: Dialogue, Art & Action.” Our goal is to have flowers of all different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors to frame the portraits of George and Breonna. Feel free to make as many as you’d like! We look forward to your contribution to the Mindful Littles Black Lives Matters Community Art Project!
