#ProjectAttica participates in #StopTheViolence Basketball Tournament

Over Labor Day Weekend, Project Attica was invited to collaborate with the group Stop the Violence in their basketball tournament in Cheraw, SC. Stop the Violence is an organization that annually conducts basketball tournaments in Cheraw that engage all the neighboring counties in an effort to build community through sports while also spreading the message of peace and non-violence. We supported the tournament by inviting the community to come and create a peace-based artivist t-shirt in commemoration of the day's theme to end violence. Check out the photos below!

Project Attica participated in a workshop during The Brotherhood Sister Sol's May Community Conversation, Artful Resistance Against Police Control, with other activists projects that are using arts to promote social justice and to demand police accountability in New York City and all throughout the United States.  

Our workshop covered the current crisis of police brutality and violence impacting millions of New Yorkers highlighting incidents such as Ramarley Graham, Akai Gurley, Eric Garner and many more.  Participants created their artivist t-shirts in the beautiful Frank White Memorial Garden learning how art can be used for resistance against police control. 

The Brotherhood Sister Sol provides comprehensive, holistic and long-term support services to youth who range in age from eight to twenty-two.  The organization focuses on issues such as leadership development and educational achievement, sexual responsibility, sexism and misogyny, political education and social justice, Pan-African and Latino history, and global awareness. Bro/Sis provides four-six year rites of passage programming, thorough five-day a week after school care, school and home counseling, summer camps, job training and employment, college preparation, community organizing training, and international study programs to Africa and Latin America.

Thanks to The Door for hosting our Artivist Workshop during Ally Week!

We were invited for the second time this year to provide a workshop to kick off Ally Week at The Door.  The Door is a non-profit organization that empowers young people by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment, allowing them to gain the necessary tools to help them become successful in life. 

During Ally Week, members of The Door will be engaging in a variety of activities inviting them to reflect on questions such as: What is an ally?  How does an ally show support for those who do not have a voice?

Ally Week is meant to broadly support LGBT youth and other marginalized groups and to challenge one another about what it means to be an ally and how we can all be allies for others.

BE AN ALLY!
