Oversteet Ducasse Triggered: Catalyst to Activist Opening Night

About

If activists are made and not born, how do we work through tragedy together to make a sustainable difference?

Through his art, artist @overstreetducasse brings us closer to examining our obsession with gun possession. Gun violence reverberates in any city where it then becomes a dominant issue for a neighborhood. As Jacksonville’s murder rates continue to rise, over-policing is no longer a singular issue to retraumatizing those who are affected on a daily basis.
