Returning for the second year, the festival will partner to help raise awareness for Our Issue, an ongoing campaign against sexual assault started by former Detroit Lions player DeAndre Levy. Lead by alumni Sydney G. James, this panel will create a conversation with leaders from the Detroit community on sexual assault, how we all have a role in fighting it, and why public art is an important part of that fight. We have also teamed with AskewOne & Sydney G. James to create a limited edition t-shirt of their 2017 Our Issue mural. All proceeds from shirts will benefit Enough SAID (Sexual Assault In Detroit), Wayne County SAFE, and The SASHA Center to support the ongoing effort of investigating the backlog of rape kits in Detroit and providing direct services and care to survivors.
