End Racism Now mural project
Our students asked us to make a donation to a community activity or initiative which was anti-racist in nature. We were looking for a local initiative applicable to Roanoke.
We identified a wonderful initiative called the “urban arts projects end racism now mural”. A beautiful collection of painted components, painted letters on a street, painted by various local artists.
We were very happy to partner with Carilion Clinic to together to donate a substantial amount to this cause.
On Thursday, August 13, representatives from the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Carilion Clinic presented checks to help with expenses related to the creation of this mural project located outside of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building in downtown Roanoke.
