No Justice, No Peace
By Oree Originol
No Justice, No Peace, created by artist Oree Origianol, was inspired by his latest body of work: Justice For Our Lives (JFOL). JFOL is a series of portraits of individuals from marginalized communities who have lost their lives due to state violence or hate crimes. This digital mural represents a central component of our Day of the Dead event, Creating Sacred Space, in which we honor those who have succumbed to injustice.
