PEACE PANDA PROJECT
At a time when communities in Chicago and elsewhere have experienced sharp increases in hostility and violence, Green Star Movement wants to provide an outlet for individuals and groups throughout the city to highlight the ways their communities promote tolerance, inclusivity, and non-violence, and to memorialize those ideas with permanent mini murals that will be installed in highly-visible areas in their neighborhoods.
With these objectives in mind, we have developed the Green Star Movement Peace Panda Project, which will empower Chicagoans to promote peace in their neighborhoods by collaborating on vibrant, mini murals anchored around the panda bear, a peaceful, non-confrontational animal.
Thanks to our generous supporters, we surpassed our fundraising goal of $3000, and have enough funds to help cover the costs of administering the design and creation workshops, materials, and installations for 8 peace pandas.
We are looking for more community partners. Do you know one? Tell us about it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
