Boards for Change is an initiative created by a team of women in Sacramento: Kimberly Prince, Lina Washington and Shannan O'Rourke. This is a collaborative community beautification project with a purpose in direct response to recent #BlackLivesMatter demonstrations. Boards for Change connected local artists with boarded-up businesses in the Sacramento Region and turned those spaces into massive canvases in a display of solidarity. 

Sacramento Republic FC is pleased to partner with Boards for Change, to display the art pieces at Papa Murphy's Park during the 2020 season.  The art pieces will be auctioned off to benefit local Black youth organizations. The proceeds will go to the Sacramento Republic FC Foundation, which is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.  The proceeds will then be distributed to local organizations.

These original, one-of-one works are now on display at Papa Murphy’s Park in the North stands, representing the emotion and creativity of the community. Check out some of the pieces that will be on display at Instagram.com/BoardsForChange/
