A community art event and vigil was held in Sebastopol's Plaza Sunday night, July 5. 

Participants were asked to bring art supplies, already-created art and flowers to the event, with the goal of attaching works of art in support of Black Lives Matter to a fence across from the Plaza.

According to a social media post from co-organizer Dezi Rae Kai, following the sign project, event attendees lit candles in honor of George Floyd and others who have died as a result of police brutality.

Sarah, Thank you so much for covering the event yesterday. It was such a relief to the heart to the see and hear the love and respect and effort of community members of all ages to support African-Americans and all people of color. Now, we will see if the poster-rippers appear at night and pull down the work...and how the community will react. Stay tuned.
