Rebuild the Breonna Taylor Sculpture in DT Oakland

The sculpture of Breonna Taylor installed at Latham Square in Downtown Oakland two weeks ago has been vandalized and smashed.

After spending months creating this artwork it was incredible to see the community and neighbors taking photos and enjoying it. Now I am devastated and enraged to see it in pieces. This was an act of racist aggression and we need to show them we will not stand for it.

Several people have reached out asking about how they can help with the repairs. The best way to prevent further damage would be to rebuild her in bronze. As an unemployed server this isn't something I can afford to do on my own. 

The bronze casting process will take months to complete and the base will also have to be reconstructed to support the additional weight. 

Any funds over the cost of rebuilding will be donated to Breonna Taylor's family 

Thank you so much.
