Art has always had a place in making change and the struggle for justice. Few things speak to present and future generations more powerfully and vividly than art.
Alliance San Diego and American Friends Service Committee are working to raise funds to paint a mural honoring the life of Anastasio Hernández Rojas, a longtime resident of San Diego who was brutally beaten and killed by border agents at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, in May of 2010. To this day, not a single border agent has been held accountable for his death, but the fight for justice continues for all of the families who have died at the hands of border agents.
Led by master muralist Victor Ochoa, local community artists will paint on the 50-foot tall pillars that hold up the Coronado Bridge.
