Artist Patrick Martinez is dedicated to honoring and uplifting Black and Brown youth in California. His paintings reference vintage Pee-Chee folders, transforming the popular school supplies into protests against violence, displacement, and racial injustice. Martinez created this mural in the style of his Pee-Chee series to celebrate graduates from Alive & Free’s violence prevention and leadership programs.
