On February 13th, Silent Cry Inc. held a community rally for Black History Month in honor of Albert L Philips Sr. and honored five law enforcement officers who are creating community through caring for community. We gave out community resources, food PPE, books, children's clothing, and more. To continue advocating on behalf of Silent Cry Inc., please contact your New York Senator Brian A. Benjamin at 212-222-7315 or email email@example.com that you are in support of the Post-Traumatic Prison Disorder Shawanna W76337 Bill.
When it comes to community grassroots organizing and coalition building for equity and inclusion, we must be mindful to never overlook smaller, less structurally developed advocacy groups, especially before we understand their on-the-ground impacts on the lives of people they serve. Shout out to Shawanna Vaughn and Silent Cry Inc. and The FARM, Inc H.O.L.L.A. Cobra Marching Band and more for their continued leadership and for being on the ground providing those resources that are most needed.

CLAIMING THE VISUAL NARRATIVE
Claiming the Visual Narrative in Newark, NJ is a community arts project created by The Confined Arts (TCA) with the goal of developing representative imagery in Newark, a community that continues to be vulnerable to racially unjust narratives of the war on drugs.
The Confined Arts has partnered with Yendor Productions, a Newark based organization that fosters hope and healing through access to the arts and cross-cultural programming, to host a community meeting where grass-roots Organizations, Artists, Activist, and other community stakeholders can discuss the role that public art and aesthetics can play in ending to the war on drugs and systemic racism in Newark.
The Claiming the Visual Narrative Project will be responding to the Salvation and Social Justice Coalition call to action, as we explore the role that public arts and aesthetics can play in abolishing the war on drugs in New Jersey, and specifically the Newark’s West Ward.
The Confined Arts will also be discussing media production opportunities that are available Spring 2021 for ARTISTS IN NEWARK through our partnership with the Newark Community Solution Center
