LCA Stands in Solidarity

We at Lawyers for the Creative Arts stand with the individuals and organizations expressing their communal revulsion over the tragedy in Minneapolis. We join them in seeking ways to replace the systemic racism that led to the death of George Floyd, and of others in similar circumstances, with the rule of equal justice under law.  

The arts and other non-profit groups have identified resources for those desiring to assist individuals on the frontlines of protest and to advocate for change. We’ve collected several of those resource listings below.

The arts have a unique role in expressing the deepest human feelings, including those arising from the crisis, protest, and societal trauma our country is now experiencing. The many murals and graffiti-style portraits of George Floyd that have emerged from the current protests are good examples*.  LCA is proud to support all those in the arts in their too-often under-appreciated contributions to helping us get through difficult times and envision a better future.
