Civic Walls Project is a street art initiative in Atlanta that has teamed up with emerging black artists to cover the city in beautiful murals with powerful meanings. 

The goal of the artistic movement is to inspire action around dismantling racism in the U.S. and empower Atlanta to work towards a peaceful future. 

The murals are dedicated to the push for equality, the Black Lives Matter movement, and families who have lost a loved one due to senseless violence and racial injustice.
