During Netroots Nation, a group of artists from the JustSeeds Artist Co-operative will paint a mural in Phoenix in support of the work done by the Colibrí Center for Human Rights, which assists families in their search for missing loved ones and brings closure to the families suffering a devastating loss.
Artists Mata Ruda, Jess X. Chen, Jetsonorama and Thea Gahr have designed beautiful murals featuring colibrí (the Spanish word for hummingbird), an indigenous symbol for safe passing. They soar as messengers between life and death, and their hundreds of species have been found migrating across the US/Mexico border for thousands of years similarly to how thousands of humans have migrated. Justseeds paints hummingbirds to honor the undefeatable spirits of the migrants who lost their lives during the journey.
We need to raise about $2900 for the supplies to make this happen. Click here to donate today.
