Request of Public Input on Social Justice Wall

Conceptual Tamarac Social Justice Wall Design

Background

Resident input is needed as the City of Tamarac’s Public Art Committee gears up to erect the City’s first social justice wall. The wall designed through this public art initiative will include portraits and quotes from social justice leaders, highlighting their contributions to the fight for equality in communities across the nation. Tamarac residents of all ages are asked to submit the name of the social justice leader who inspires them most, representing any race, ethnicity, gender, religion or era in American history. Names of social justice leaders submitted by residents can represent the local, state or national community. 

All residents are invited to share input. Middle school students residing in Tamarac are encouraged to participate through the Youth Outreach Essay Contest. Resident input and essay contest entries must be submitted by Friday, December 3 to PublicArt@Tamarac.org. Members of the public will also have the opportunity to meet with artist Michael Parker, designer of Tamarac's social justice wall, during a community meeting Wednesday, November 17, 6 - 7 p.m., at Tamarac Community Center, 7501 N. University Drive.
