Sacramento, Calif. – Demetris Washington painted the ground mural neat the State Capitol so everyone can see that racism is impacting so many lives and that Sacramento has had enough. 

It all started last Friday when he received a phone call asking if he wanted to take part in this social project calling for an end to systemic racism.  He doesn’t consider himself much of an activist, but after the death of George Floyd, he quickly said yes.
