Vielmetter Los Angeles stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and with those protesting against police brutality, white supremacy, injustice and racism. The gallery is taking time to listen, learn and take action. Our team is committing to implement long term strategies to effect change, both within the gallery and within our larger community.
As part of a year-long commitment to supporting organizations that are doing this critical work, we will highlight an organization each month, and pledge a donation of $1000. For this month we are highlighting The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE). ACCE is a multi-racial, democratic, non-profit community organization that builds power to fight and stand for economic, racial and social justice.
We will announce the next organization we are supporting on August 15th.
We would also like to thank everyone who has made contributions in support of Paul Mpagi Sepuya's Solidarity Print. As of July 25, 2020 more than $214,688. have been donated directly to the organizations.
