Protest Removal of BLM Mural on Broadway

A local artist recently painted BLACK LIVES MATTER on Broadway Ave in Redwood City, CA, similar to the large mural in Washington D.C. Based on a single complaint by a white woman, the City Council unilaterally decided to remove the mural and did so despite receiving numerous requests from the community to keep it. 

Such negation of the community’s voice is itself an example of white supremacy—privileging one white voice over the community’s. 

For many of us, the BLM mural is a powerful reminder of one of the greatest social justice movements in our country and one of the largest protests we’ve had here in Redwood City. The mural also marks our city as being in alignment with other cities that demand justice for George Floyd and other Black and brown people who live with injustice every day due to white supremacy.

Sign here to show your support for the BLM mural and to demand that our City Council listens to the community when making such decisions in the future.
