The business and civic community is invited to partner with the County of San Mateo Arts Commission on our exciting project to inspire arts leaders to respond social injustice using artistic expression as a medium for social change.
Through participation in an experiential trip to Montgomery, AL to visit Civil Rights memorials, museums, and arts organizations, and meetings with “foot soldiers” and community leaders, along with participation in facilitator-led County Community Conversations, we will gain a better understanding of the Civil Rights movement.
