Flowers and Bullets Collective

Flowers are the art and bullets are the struggle. The Flowers and Bullets Collective are organizers creating outlets for underserved youth and communities, which highlight the life we live and the places that we come from. By sharing skills, promoting place-based connections in the barrio, and listening to each other’s stories they promote sustainable ways of living. These ways of life address some of the traumas in their community, caused by disproportionate minority incarceration, drug addiction, physical and mental violence, food insecurity, health issues, and economic disparity.
