Tons of love to @workingclassroom, my lead apprentice @angel_van_buuren and our team of apprentices for making mural happen. "Educational Justice Will Guide Us Into the Future We Deserve" is the message carried by this mural about a just present that can guarantee a better and brighter future. The mural speaks of traditional forms of education given to us by nature and indigenous cultures as well as the western educational system as stepping stones to success and shows us how to make this trajectory just for all: by leveling the ground and lifting each other up within our communities as brother and sisters. Along with this message of renewal and growth, the mural reflects and celebrates Working Classroom's mission of bridging Art, Education and Social Justice for the youth of the community.

This mural was a result of an educational residency at Working Classroom in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
