“Come Walk with Me” Mural Unveiled to Combat Hate in Los Angeles
TaskForce has partnered with LA vs Hate to create public art installations as part of our “Summer of Solidarity” campaign. Last week, our teams revealed “Come Walk with Me”, a new mural by artist Kiara Aileen Machado that celebrates Latinx history and communities.
“Come Walk with Me” was designed through community workshops to address the unprecedented increase of hate-based incidents across California. The project emphasizes the need for cross-cultural and interracial solidarity, as LA vs Hate continues to bring diverse groups together through the power of art.
This mural was created in partnership with The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), as well as the offices of LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis and El Monte Mayor Jessica Ancona.
TaskForce will continue to work with LA vs Hate and local organizations through the fall, with new murals commissioned and revealed to celebrate various cultures across Los Angeles County. Learn more about the collaboration and visit our toolkit for more resources to advocate for our communities.
