About the Altar

“Not One More” is an altar dedicated to victims of police brutality and state sanctioned violence. Designed by Carrie Leilam Love & Fallon Young, this altar features prayer candles with words and images from youth participating in programs at RYSE Youth Center in Richmond, including Kenneth Berlin, David Castaneda, Jaíme Correa, Julian Huendo, Colin Taniguchi, Karen Tobar and Daniel Torres.

Projected images are from the September 2014 Black Lives Matter Ferguson Freedom Ride, endorsed by PowerPAC+: video by Lulu Matute, image contributions from Rheema Calloway and James Cox.

The “hands up” mural was designed by Lex NonScripta. Jason Wyman spearheaded the collaborative creation of the zine resources. Many hands cut the butterflies above.

Our collective hope is that not one more life will be lost to an abuse of power. Not one more.
