Black Lives Matter Street Mural in Lynn, MA

The community of Lynn, being led by Lynn youth representing all schools in Lynn, propose a painted street mural of ‘Black Lives Matter’ spanning from Essex Street (starting in front of the court house) and running continuously past Johnson Street to end outside city hall steps  Black Lives Matter is more than a statement. Painting Black Lives Matter serves as a reminder to the systems that remain in place that we need institutional and systemic change and that the rest of the community has joined together to be heard. In a city whose politicians constantly share in their speeches the diversity of our city as a selling point to attempt to reel more people and businesses into the city, we must stand up for the injustice that have and continue to occur that:

 Our black brothers and sisters murdered at the hands of those that are sworn to protect them,
A system that incarcerates Black people and communities of color at much higher rates and longer sentences, 
 Systems that incentivize keeping blacks and people of color destitute. 

The approval of the mural happened with a unanimous vote by the Lynn City Council in April 2021.  We are now working very hard to collect the funds to put down the mural on July 24-25th 2021! 

Placing this mural on the streets of Lynn provides a voice to the voiceless. It is an acknowledgment of the systematic racism that plagues our streets, our community, and our nation. Together we can walk the path of change. Together with you, we can be on the right side of history.

All donations to the mural are charitable.

Our best,
One Lynn, One Love
