These days you can't turn a corner without seeing a Black Lives Matter banner, yard or homemade sign. It's pretty incredible to see neighborhoods and communities come together for equal justice. We have a long way to go, but the conversation is currently booming between friends, family members and all over social media. It's our job to keep the conversation and momentum alive!

In June, Capitol Hill was the first major canvas of the Black Lives Matter movement in Seattle when the neighborhood received their beautiful BLM street mural. The dedication to the cause carried over the bridge into the heart of West Seattle. Local artists and devoted neighbors came together one morning in July to create a vivid masterpiece for all to enjoy while visiting the Junction.
