Fresh Art Friday: Black Lives Matter.
Our community started with the goal of embracing and amplifying diversity and providing a safe platform to express creativity. It is our collective responsibility to enact change and stand against injustice. We stand in solidarity with George Floyd, his family, and the countless other families whose voices must be heard, in the fight for justice and equality.
"Because we’ve always found happiness and joy despite our surroundings. We have always found love during the story. We can be happy and sad. We can be angry and elated. I love us. I will always love us."- @5amtoday.
Today, take a moment to celebrate creativity and discover amazing work by featured artists on Ello. Scroll down for more ways you can get involved.

"With this series I hope to expose different perspectives on authenticity, self love, shared spaces and how it impacts us. In order for anyone to express their true essence, they need a safe, comfortable space free of judgement and discrimination that allows them to be their authentic selves."
THE TARGET was inspired by the movie "Fruitvale Station" (about the shooting of Oscar Grant III) and the music video "Element" by Kendrick Lamar. Though I already used the illustration in my Zine THIS ISN'T HAPPINESS, it is only fitting that I also dedicate it to the Black Lives Matter movement in light of the murder of George Floyd. Let us unite against racism.
