About the CharityCLARIS HEALTH
Claris Health’s story began over 40 years ago, when a small group of women were inspired to start an organization that offered life-changing services to women, men, and families. Our mission from the start has been to equip and care for individuals and their families, before, during, and after pregnancy and sexual-health choices.
SOLIDARITY is a movement of artists who share the themes of hope, unity, inspiration and equality.
When our local businesses were boarded up after the death of George Floyd, it was a reaction to the reflex of protests that flared into looting and violence. A display of fear that mirrored the intense anger that overflowed from people of all color who were awakening to a 400 year nightmare.
The boards soon came down as fear and anger were mostly transformed with understanding, empathy and positive action.
The boards now represent a turning point. A moment in time that must be marked, documented and claimed as a milestone. So it is our intention to transform these pieces of wood that were stood up as a defense, into a work of art that stands in offense to the systemic inequalities and oppression that has plagued our country and people for far too long.
Each board will become part of the larger story, transformed by artists who will share their ideas and their story in the process. In return, we ask that you support the movement with donations to support people of color in Los Angeles.
